Oliver Vance is a boy who, like so many others, wants to be cool. His definition of cool is whatever the "big boys" are doing, and Oliver notices that the big boys wear their pants below their waists. Some even show their underwear! Oliver decides to try this new look himself. His mother disapproves, but Oliver is so sure that wearing sagging pants will make him cool that he ignores her warning and leaves the house with his pants sagging and his underwear showing. It doesn't take long before Oliver learns that this new look causes all kinds of unexpected problems.

About the Illustrator

Anthony B. Jackson began drawing at a very early age, and won his first award for exceptional artistic ability in second grade. Despite his giftedness, Mr. Jackson was not encouraged to cultivate his talent. In fact, he was often told to stop drawing and wasnít given any tools or supplies to develop his skills. Nevertheless, he did not give up. His first illustrations were drawn from cartoons he watched on television since he did not have any drawing books. In the absence of sketch pads or paper, he drew on folders, newsprint, or whatever he could find, including blank pages from dictionaries or church hymnals.

In high school, Mr. Jackson drew illustrations and a comic strip for the school newspaper, obtained his first paid job as the illustrator of a construction manual, and he earned a letter of commendation from the US Senate in recognition of his outstanding talent. He also entered a AAA poster contest where his submission ranked among the top 10 nationwide. Later in his career, Mr. Jackson designed t-shirts, created logos for schools, and drew signs for the Navy. He even expanded his creativity into other areas by producing music for a gold-record recording artist. Mr. Jackson resides in Keysville, Georgia.
