About the Book:
Make way for the butt!
Tall butts, short butts, round butts, flat butts.
Butts on mummies and butts on mommies.
Butts on giraffes and elephants and dogs and… FISH?
Yes, even fish butts are celebrated in this tribute to backsides, rumps, tushies, keisters, heinies, and derrieres. Dozens of funny rhymes and pages of laugh-out-loud pictures pay homage to a body part that keeps kids and grown-ups giggling with glee.
Artie Bennett is the executive copy editor for Random House Children’s Books and he writes a little on the side (but not on the backside!). He’s the co-author of 101 Ways to Say Vomit, for those who enjoy a good “gag,” and the author of The Dinosaur Joke Book: A Compendium of Pre-Hysteric Puns. He enjoys the three B’s: birdwatching, botanizing, and bike riding. He’s been butt-besotted since stumbling upon the word “callipygian” at age three. He lives with his wife, Leah, in the bowels of Brooklyn.

Absolutely, positively, HILARIOUSLY good!!! Simple as that. This review will not be overly long for the simple fact, it’s not an overly long book. It’s a children’s book, of course. But, I LOVED it. My kids LOVED it. I read it to them before they went to bed the day after I got it, and it was so FUN to not only read, but to listen to them laughing at both the story of the butts and the illustrations that followed! The reading part was so fun, because it rhymed (hello Dr. Suess!) and was totally catchy. I really got a bit animated when I read it to them…..! Totally worth the 5 stars that I am giving this book! And the illustrations….man, they were FANTABULOUS and went awesomely with the words Artie used. Well done, Mike Lester! If you have young kids that love a GREAT book and love a laugh out loud experience with eye catching pictures, then you MUST, I repeat, MUST get a copy of Artie’s book. It will be worth as you get “behind” the story and see how catchy it is. You’ll even know, by the end of the story, that snakes DO NOT have butts…..hmmmm…interesting ( I say this because my oldest LOVES snakes….ewww!). What are you waiting on? Get that “rear” in gear and grab a copy today!
