SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:
A young boy suddenly notices a big problem — his butt has a huge crack! So he sets off to find a new one. Will he choose an armor-plated butt? A rocket butt? A robot butt? Find out in this quirky tale of a tail, which features hilarious rhymes and delightful illustrations. Children and parents will love this book — no ifs, ands, or butts about it!MY TAKE:
I don't usually like books about butts but I thought this one was pretty funny.
In I Need a New Butt!, a little boy thinks he broke his butt so he starts thinking of what kind of replacement butt he should have.
I'm not really a fan of the illustration style, however, particularly the way the boy was drawn. I did like the use of color, though.
I wasn't really sure how the book would be able to pull off being funny without being gross, but it was able to do so. I actually liked the different types of butts he considered, especially the arty-farty butt. I found myself laughing a few times and my infant son seemed to enjoy it too as he laughed a couple of times, although I'm not sure if he was laughing at the drawings or at the verses.
