Review "The Butt Book is the funniest book I have ever read. I have to give the author a lot of credit for writing this hilarious book. I read the book at least twenty times, enjoying immensely the rhyming on each page. As a former kindergarten teacher, I can see how the book can be used in the classroom to teach students all about rhyming words. This is what reading is all about, catching a child's attention from the start, so he or she can fall in love with reading. The illustrations by Mike Lester bring further value to this one-of-a-kind book. Bravo! Well done." -- Blogcritics Best Feel-Good Children's Book for April "And speaking of the end, who couldn't use another book about butts? This book asks the important questions, like, 'Why do we have butts? Perchance, a place to place our underpants?' If you've got a boy, a preschooler, or a kid with a sense of humor that revolves around potty talk, you won't regret adding this to your shelf." -- The Huffington Post "The Butt Book by Artie Bennett, illustrated by Mike Lester, is one of those books that is a delight for both the child and the parent. My first time reading the book to the boys and my wife, I could not actually get through the whole book as I was laughing too much. We had to take a break before I was able to control myself and finish what is now one of the favorite books in the house. The rhymes that Artie brings to the table are matched with artwork that is just as humorous and brings the words of Artie to life. T his was one great book!" --B SC Kids "There is no greater kids' writer chronicling the buttocks than Artie Bennett. And there is no better book about the butt than The Butt Book, Bennett's classic. If you're under 10 and live in our editor's house, you've heard this book every night at bedtime for a year. And if you're not, you should have. You'll thank us in the end (get it? The 'end?')." --T he Brooklyn Paper, Editors' Pick "I laughed like crazy as I read The Butt Book. I don't know if you own The Tooth Book by Theo. LeSieg--who knows Dr. Seuss rather well--but The Butt Book is a sillier, zanier version of that story and talks about bottoms, how handy they are to have, and many of the creatures who have them. My daughters have brought every one of their friends up to my office to read this book. It is uproariously funny, and Mike Lester's art is just as crazy as Bennett's rhymes. I have never laughed so hard in my life. Boys and girls will love this one!" --T he Children's and Teens' Book Connection About the Author Artie Bennett is an executive copy editor by day and a writer by night. He is the inspired creator of The True Story of Zippy Chippy: The Little Horse That Couldn't, Belches, Burps, and Farts--Oh My!, Peter Panda Melts Down!, Poopendous!, The Butt Book, and What's Afoot! Your Complete, Offbeat Guide to Feet. And if that's not enough, he's also written two hilarious joke and riddle books, The Universe's Greatest School Jokes and Rip-Roaring Riddles and The Universe's Greatest Dinosaur Jokes and Pre-Hysteric Puns. As one critic put it: "Bennett's use of rhyme is excellent; his stanzas flow and exude joviality in a manner that few writers since Dr. Seuss have truly mastered. Simply put, these books are a joy."
