Green Pants

By Kenneth Kraegel
Illustrated by Kenneth Kraegel

For kids who march to their own drummer — or are especially attached to a comfort object — here is a completely adorable character who wears his singularity in style.

Jameson only ever wears green pants. When he wears green pants, he can do anything. But if he wants to be in his cousin’s wedding, he’s going to have to wear a tuxedo, and that means black pants. It’s an impossible decision: Jameson would love nothing more than to be in his cousin's wedding, but how can he not wear green pants? Will Jameson turn down this big honor, or will he find a way to make everyone happy, including himself? In this pitch-perfect ode to individualism, acclaimed author-illustrator Kenneth Kraegel creates a character readers of all ages can root for — whatever color pants they wear.

  • The potential break-out book from a truly unique talent, with broader appeal than King Arthur's Very Great Grandson and The Song of Delphine
  • A great resource for kids struggling with conformity or for kids who are reliant on their comfort/transitional objects
  • A child-centered story featuring a quirky but utterly relatable character
