To quote a young friend of mine, butts are amazing! Squishy, strong, and multipurpose, the human heinie is a source of endless fascination and hilarity. From beginning readers to grandparents, Jonathan Stutzman’s explanatory ode to the tushie gets readers giggling while illuminating the universal wonder of down under.

Synopses & Reviews
A triumphant celebration of the tushee.
Big ones, little ones, round ones and flat ones, furry ones and prickly ones — butts are everywhere, and each one is special! These powerful muscles make it possible for people and animals to jump, sit, and everything in between. The gluteus really is the maximus!
This funny, sweet, and commercial picture book celebrates one of our most useful (and hilarious) body parts, and is sure to become a favorite read-aloud for children and parents alike.
“Utilizing a true wealth of hilarious synonyms, married cocreators Stutzman and Fox request a little respect, please, for the buttocks, which is not just "something to crack jokes about."” Publishers Weekly
“Kids love a little butt talk, and they get it in this title that takes on the universality of the bottom across nature…Fox's childlike drawings are a good complement to Stutzman's narrative.” School Library Journal
"Young readers will be happy to read and reread this dynamic data on their duffs." Kirkus
