Summary from Goodreads:

Four very different friends. One pair of magical pants. And a summer apart...

We, the Sisterhood, hereby instate the following rules to govern the use of the Traveling Pants:

1. You must never wash the Pants.

2. You must never double-cuff the Pants. It's tacky. There will never be a time when this will not be tacky.

3. You must never say the word "phat" while wearing the Pants. You must also never think "I am fat" while wearing the Pants.

4. You must never let a boy take off the Pants (although you may take them off yourself in his presence).

5. You must not pick your nose while wearing the Pants. You may, however, scratch casually at your nostril while really kind of picking.

6. Upon our reunion, you must follow the proper procedures for documenting your time in the Pants.

7. You must write to your Sisters throughout the summer, no matter how much fun you are having without them.

8. You must pass the Pants along to your Sister according to the specifications set down by the Sisterhood. Failures to comply will result in a severe spanking upon our reunion.

9. You must not wear the Pants with a tucked-in shirt and belt. See rule #2.

10. Remember: Pants = love. Love your pals. Love yourself.

A wonderful tail of friendship that over comes all and is connected by a pair of pants.

This book was fun. I've never seen the movie, but have always heard good things about it and it was the reason I picked up this book.

As the friends in the story go their separate ways for the summer, they unite and grow their bonds even from far away by sharing a single pair of pants. This seemingly magical pair of pants fits every body shape the friends can throw at it. 

This was a cute, heartwarming and fun read for all ages. Great for your summer reading list.
