Everyone Poops meets The Book with No Pictures in this irresistibly naughty read-aloud. When you get the urge to say you-know-what, don't. DON'T SAY POOP!

Why say a vile word like poop when you could say humdrum bum crumbs, float-or-sinker, major stinker, sometimes mushy from your tushy, or smelly belly funky jelly. See how much nicer that is?

This silly book of tongue twisters will have kids doubled over as they learn some alternatives to their favorite potty words. Perfect for reading aloud, and for reading again and again!

About the Author

Jimmy Matejek-Morris is a Young Adult and Middle Grade author and screenwriter. His pieces often explore the boundary between fantasy and reality, complex family dynamics, and LGBTQ inclusivity. Jimmy has a BA in Film Studies and English from Cornell University and an MFA in Writing for Children from Simmons College. He lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts, with his husband, Scott, and very well-dressed dog, Rudy.

When he is not writing, he enjoys watching anything with the Muppets, collecting action figures, drinking hot chocolate, and chasing Rudy around with a camera.

Humour has always been top of Fred Blunt’s list when it comes to drawing. Right from those early (rather unflattering) portraits of teachers, he knew he wanted to entertain with his work. Now writing and illustrating his own, very silly picture books – Fred couldn’t be happier. He lives in Wiltshire, with his wife, two children and their retired Greyhound, Olive.
