Green Pants

By Kenneth Kraegel
Illustrated by Kenneth Kraegel

“This quirky kid and his loving family will instantly endear themselves to readers.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Jameson only ever wears green pants. 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. 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.

  • An appealing and extremely relatable story from a truly unique talent, with broader appeal than King Arthur's Very Great Grandson and The Song of Delphine, now in a paperback edition
  • 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
