The Butt Book

By Artie Bennett; Mike Lester (Illustrator)

Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, Hardcover, 9781599903118, 32pp.

Publication Date: December 22, 2009

Description

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.

Bottoms up.



About the Author
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.
