Title: I need a New Butt!
Author: Dawn McMillan
Illustrator: Ross Kinnaird
Let's take a peek inside shall we?
My take on the book:
I can assure you right now that your kids will love this book. Anything irreverent concerning body parts or body sounds are always a hit with kids. They will giggle, they will laugh and they will want this book to be read over and over again because it is just plain silly and funny....the perfect kid-combo.
"I need a new bum! Mine's got a crack.
I can see in the mirror a crack at the back."
And so starts the journey for a new and improved - crackless, custom-made, tailor-made behind. But what does one do and where does one go to get a repair job or even a brand new model? This book will have you in stitches as this little boy tries to weigh all his options as to what would be the best bum to suit his needs. He very carefully sorts through what might be available to him such as colours, sizes, shapes, designs: arty-farty ? alien? fireproof? bulleproof?... and the list just keeps on going....all very clever and imaginative alternatives I might add.
Then the little boy makes a discovery which causes him even more anxiety. He notices that dad's bum crack is showing too!! Oh no, this might be contagious. Whatever shall he do?
Written in rhyme and with illustrations that off set the storyline perfectly this book is guaranteed to entertain and make your heart happy as you read along. If anyone objects to your laughter on such a saucy subject just politely tell them to ..... butt out!
