School Library Journal - 01/01/2018 POPPreS-Gr 2—This funny follow-up to Animals Should Definitely Not Wear Clothing presents readers with a new selection of animals who should never, ever wear clothing. They would simply be faced with too many problems! After all, clothing would hamper a horse, fluster a flamingo, be unbearable for a bear, and is unnecessary because a penguin is already dressed. Most of all, it would be absurd for an armadillo. The best-selling author/illustrator duo of the award-winning "Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs" series have crated another winner. Ron Barrett's humorous illustrations of animals struggling while wearing clothing paired with Judi Barrett's big, bold text create the perfect combination and convincingly prove their point. Alliteration and plays on words make the pages with text just as laughable as the corresponding art. VERDICT This is a light and enjoyable picture book with the takeaway that animals are better off just the way they are—without clothing! Recommended for fans of the first book and anyone who likes to laugh.—Elizabeth Blake, Brooklyn Public Library - Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
