Pants are super silly – especially when you wear them on your head!
That’s the fun fashion in a gorgeous new children’s bedtime read called ‘Pants Hats’ – illustrated by our very own holistic expert Emi Lou.
The story is set in a hospital and follows imaginative characters who like to wear their pants on their heads.
Proceeds from the book are going to the leading children’s cancer research charity Kidscan.
Shockingly, 25 percent of children who are diagnosed with cancer do not live to see their 30th birthday.
Buying a copy of ‘Pants Hats’ and taking a ‘Pants Hats Selfie’ is something simple and FUN anyone can do to give the families of the 1,600 children diagnosed with cancer every year hope for a better future.
So if you pop into see us next week, please excuse us if we have our (clean!) pants on our heads. It’s all in a great cause as we show our support to Emi Lou and her campaign.
“I decided to set my book in a hospital, with the message that you can have fun in a hospital,” says Emi Lou, who was diagnosed with cancer herself two months into the Pants Hats project.
“I’ve been over a hundred times so I know it’s true! And of course now I know how it feels to go through cancer; to lose all your hair; and to have that experience. I can really relate to the cause.
‘I feel very happy with the result. I wouldn’t like to guess how many hours it has taken in trial and error! But the result is just what I was looking for: quirky, colourful and most importantly fun!”
