Description

Japanese illustrator Taro Miura brings his bold, whimsical graphic style to a board book for the very young.

A duck’s fluffy . . .
bum bum.

Perfectly positioned over the center of each spread, the posteriors in this simple and simply hilarious book showcase an array of creatures. And each one has a distinguishing characteristic: the pig’s is round, the elephant’s is big, the monkey’s is red — and the toddler’s diapered behind is the cutest of all.

Praise For Bum, Bum

Both books are illustrated with bold, simple shapes rendered in a clean, limited color palette. The narratives are also simply put forth, presenting silly words that parents can play with in all sorts of ways when reading aloud to their toddlers. An absurd but cute read that will have tots and parents alike giggling aloud.
