Have you ever seen a banana in a bikini? Or a tangerine in trunks? What about grapes in goggles? In this uproarious follow-up to Vegetables in Underwear, kids will learn that there are many kinds of suits—including suits for swimming, surfing, sunbathing, and scuba diving. But can you wear a business suit to the beach? Fruits in Suits has the same irreverent silliness as Vegetables in Underwear and shows just how much fun swimsuits can be—and how important it is to hold on to them when you jump into the water!

(synopsis from Goodreads)

I've already read Vegetables in Underwear, so when I saw the sequel at the library, I had to check it out. Fruits in Suits is just as silly as the other book, although I did enjoy this one a little bit more. The idea of fruits needing bathing suits is pretty amusing. I especially liked the grapefruit, who was wearing an entirely different type of "suit".

This is a nice companion to Vegetables in Underwear. If you liked the silliness of that one, you'll probably enjoy this one, too.
