Unwrapping the Story

This is the second book starring a cracked and broken butt and both will be a favourite for kids to enjoy.  Written in rhyme and full of fun this book will bring much laughter and entertainment to the reader. (especially reluctant readers)  

A young boy has tumbled off his bike and broken his butt.  It is fragmented terribly into huge chunks and his solution is to glue it together.  Yes, that's the perfect fix.  He blobs glue on the pieces  and restructures his bottom.  Yes, that seems to be working fine and although the crack remains the little boy doesn't seem to mind. 

He is finally satisfied with his masterpiece, slops on more glue and presses his glutes into the gluey tray and voilà... oh oh... ohhhh NOOOOO.... the tray won't release from his butt.  Does this mishap  deter him from living his life happily?  Absolutely not!  When you've been given a broken bum don't get bummed out - celebrate that quirkiness and that's just what the boy did. 

He adjusts his wardrobe to include the tray and he is off using his tray to slide in the mud, sand and snow, winning at paintball with his bum-shield, and surfing on big waves just to name a few.  Who knew?  He has a build-in fun machine attached to his butt.  Whaahooooo! 

An unfortunate crash disengages the tray and the boy has to make a decision.  Should he re-attach the tray or just forget it? It was so much fun. What do you think he will decide to do?  What would you do? 

This book made me laugh. It is a great read. I know that kids will be delighted with this story and go back and read it again and again and also recommend it to their friends.  The illustrations are full of action and emotion making the text come alive.  I highly recommend this book.
