The guinea pig sports the stars and stripes while Buddy the dog looks cool in polka dots. The paisley clad parrot is the epitome of sartorial eloquence, while the hamster . . . well, it’s best to just read the app and find out for yourself.
The story is narrated with highlighted text to support early readers. Images are colourful, funny and uncluttered, which creates a clear focus as each pet models their preferred pants. It is a light-hearted and charming app which will amuse all children, not just pet owners.
