As every weary parent knows, it can be an uphill struggle getting children dressed.

In Caryl Hart's new picture book, little Fred finds the whole process so bothersome that he enlists the assistance of Her Majesty's Army. Trouble is, it turns out that the soldiers find it just as hard. By working together, though, Fred and his new friends might get the problem licked.

Small readers can never resist the allure of a book all about pants, and this is wonderfully silly stuff, combining Hart's Dr Seuss-style rhymes with Hodgkinson's glorious kaleidoscopic illustrations, her style familiar from the first series of CBeebies' "Charlie and Lola" show.
