The Butt BookMake 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.

Bottoms up!


If you couldn't tell, this book is all about butts... and not just big butts either! All butts are celebrated in this one. I have to go ahead and say, this was a HUGE hit at my house.

My 10-year-old son learned that the British call butts "bums". He was very impressed. I was ticked to see the poem about a glow worm used in the book. (I saw the same poem on a cave wall in New Zealand 11 years ago and thought it was hilarious.) My youngest (5), just loved the whole thing. The fact that butt was mentioned on every page had him giggling.

The Butt Book was a funny story all about butts with great pictures. Some of the scenes were so ridiculous, you couldn't help but laugh. The author and illustrator did a great job making a body part that is often looked down on something worthy of a book. Absolutely hilarious!
