Additional Notes

From The Publisher*<p><strong>For fans of Taro Gomi's </strong><strong><em>Everyone Poops</em></strong><strong> and Matthew Van Fleet's </strong><strong><em>Tails</em></strong><strong>, this cheeky, whimsical picture book for ages 3-7 inspires self-love and body positivity, plus a whole lot of laughter and fun!</strong></p><p><strong>All bottoms are wonderful! Don't you agree? Each animal in this adorable book has a different reason for loving their behind</strong>-from cute and round to fashionable and striped! Talented illustrator Maki Saito makes kids laugh out loud with playful illustrations of the backsides of hippos, zebras, pandas, mandrills, and more of our favorite animals. Her traditional Japanese art techniques add a sophisticated, beautiful feel to a book about … animal butts! Kids will love readling along to this wonderfully silly and unusually empowering book.</p><p><strong>"In Saito's delicate renderings, each bottom is distinct and, yes, beautiful."- </strong><strong><em>Kirkus </em></strong></p>
Review Quote*<p>"This humorous title delivers just what it promises: fauna fawning over their own rumps. ...In Saito's delicate renderings, each bottom is distinct and, yes, beautiful."<br />-<em><strong>Kirkus Reviews</strong></em></p><p>"From a cuddly round bunny bottom to a hippo's "so-o-o big" bum, Saito celebrates animal behinds in all their forms...there's not a trace of self-consciousness in this jaunty, no-nonsense exhibition of animal posteriors."<br />-<em><strong>Publishers Weekly</strong></em></p>
