Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rhyming couplets feature Professor Poopdeck and two young friends as he takes them on a type of poop safari. Words for poop (e.g., guano, number two, ca-ca), its forms and styles (cubes, tubular, wet and dry), and myriad of uses (souvenirs, a means of tracking and marking, housing insulation, food, fertilizer, fuel, etc.) are all conveyed with humor and a certain demand for respect. It's a book that says: Don't just flush this stuff away! While it may dismay and stink, there's more to this stuff than you might think!

Review:

"Wearing safari-ready attire, mustachioed Professor Pip Poopdeck takes readers on a fearless expedition to the heart of fecal matter. Bennett, whose 2009 The Butt Book inhabited similar territory, addresses this subject with a nimble rhyme: 'Rabbit pellets, raccoon tubes,/ Owl whitewash, and wombat cubes./ Camel poop is desert-dry./ Wet poop comes from birds on high.' Besides being a perennially funny topic of conversation for kids, poop has its uses, too, from transporting seeds to serving as fertilizer: 'Poop enriches soil that's poor./ Grow umpteen beans and greens galore!' Moran's vibrant, Cartoon Network — ready digital art features a pair of children accompanying the professor and, of course, a bevy of animals doing their duty. There are kernels of wisdom to be found in Poopdeck's lecture, but the main point is entertainment. Ages 4 — up. (June)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

About the Author

Artie Bennett is the inspired creator of The Butt Book, a "good-natured hymn of praise to rear ends in all their variety" (The Horn Book). Here Mr. Bennett once again combines fascinating facts with elegant rhyme to bring kids an illuminating look at a topic that shouldn't offend us, and is actually quite poop-endous! The author lives in Brooklyn, NY.

It’s true: little kids love to talk about poop. Parents can help them channel that attraction, and get them talking and laughing and learning abut poop all at the same time with the help of a new picture book for ages 4 and up called Poopendous. Written by Artie Bennett, who also wrote The Butt Book, Poopendous uses rhyming couplets to help kids learn about a few facts about the stuff that comes out of every animal’s body.

The story takes us on a journey with Professor Pip Poopdeck, who is full of fun facts such as “Poop from critters is called dung, and monkey dung is sometimes flung.” Or, “Camel poop is desert-dry. Wet poop comes from birds on high.” Mike Moran’s colorful illustrations are funny too. Every page features the professor and his two students, a girl and a boy, as they travel the world to find out facts about poop. You see mice and frogs and aardvarks, dogs and hippos and termites all happily getting down to business.

Poopendous is sure to delight kids and the adults who read to them. I highly recommend it.

The author provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion in this review.
