Pets in Pants are ready to party in the sticker and doodling book that puts the hats on cats and the togs on dogs! With two pages of silly sticker outfits to choose from, kids can embellish amusing scenes with stickers or simply doodle on designer costumes. You can dress the penguins for the red carpet, stick the pants on ants, complete ballet-dancing flamingos or even pirating parrots, plus much, much more.
Chris grew up somewhere between the canals of south-west France, the Swiss mountains and England's Essex estuary. The youngest of four children (the little brother role he still embraces in adulthood), Chris spent the majority of his education drawing on his friends' schoolbooks and was brought up on a diet of Tom & Jerry, Swiss chocolates, cheap fizzy pop and French sunshine. Chris' irreverent sense of humour was born from years as both a mild mannered doodler and angry burger flipper. Taking inspiration as much from Henri Matisse as he does The Muppets as well as odd bits of packaging collected from foreign supermarkets Chris' work has been described as charming and visually striking with a sharp graphic style. His illustrations are populated with rambunctious characters that are a cleverly crafted mix of an uncomplicated line style, wonky perspectives and conspicuous colour choices.
