Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-Butts, hineys, and bottoms are battling it out. Readers are expected to rate 10 talented tushies from varying species in the animal and sea life world. The Pudgy Pooter manatee uses its farts to help with swimming. When it wants to go to the surface, it holds its gas in, and when it wants to go back down, it lets gas out. Herrings, or the Toot Talkers of the underwater kingdom, communicate with one another through farts. Wombats, known in this competition as Tough Tushies, mark territory with their poop, which is uniquely shaped as cubes. Spreads of each of the 10 talented derrieres present the animals in their natural habitats. Detailed information about the creature is shared in a fun and relatable way that will appeal to kids. The habitats are depicted in beautifully colored illustrations of the ocean, desert, or underground. Readers can use a scale to decide the rating of an animal's bottom-from terrific tushie to boring backside. More difficult scientific terminology is bold in the text and defined in the glossary. VERDICT Recommended for general purchase for public and elementary school libraries; a perfect nonfiction choice for reluctant readers.-Kristen Todd-Wurm, Middle Country P.L., NYα(c) Copyright 2011.

Review

"The book is a gas. Ripping good fun!"
 ―
Kirkus Reviews

"If ever a science book begged to be read aloud, this is it, and the competitive approach to its crowd-pleasing topic will engender plenty of discussion and debate."―
Booklist

"Silly cartoon illustrations and a punny text convey a butt load of information about unusual behaviors (herring 'communicate through farts') and anatomies (a Sonoran coralsnake's butt looks like its head, which tricks predators). A 'Butt Bonus' feature with each entry adds related material."―
The Horn Book Guide

"This hilarious book by Jocelyn Rish is full of awesome facts that kids are sure to retain, accompanied by artist David Creighton-Pester’s colorful and expressive illustrations."―
Red Tricycle

"Recommended for general purchase for public and elementary school libraries; a perfect nonfiction choice for reluctant readers."―
