Andy has penned what started out as a humours book aimed at young readers. Unfortunately, it is a book filled with grey areas.


Bad language like 'crap' and 'hell' did not sit with me, so I stopped reading to the kids after a while due to the lack of suitability. It featured strong language i would expect in young adult but the themes were about farts and bums so the target seems young readers.


The jokes were thin, and were based around the same three with the worst being the gran and her seeing

Well, I liked this one better than the first one, however there were a couple of things I didn't.

First, for being a kids book, there was a decent amount of indecent language: Zack's dad: "Damn these antiquated machines" and lots of use of the word hell - hell-bent, snowball's chance in hell, and I believe just using the word once, but I can't really remember other than I know there was another instance besides the other two examples. Now, I don't normally care about this stuff, and I'm trying to

The book Zombie Butts form Uranus is a very funny and adventureous book. The reason that it was so funny was because it was well.....on BUTTS! Not just any butts though they are ZOMBIE BUTTS FROM URANUS!!!!!!!! Zack Freeman is not a very good butt fighter which in his mind the worst there ever was. Zack Freeman is not told this by his parents but they are acually first rate butt fighters but they tell there SON that they are music players and that they are on a world tour. They are acually in ou ...more

I should have listened to the warning at the beginning - this book is not suitable for adults. I did laugh out loud at many of the butt puns (univarse...haha) but they started to blend together after a few pages. Plus I didn't care for the story. I'm sure 12-year-old me would have been into it more, and I will definitely recommend this one to children who like to giggle uncontrollably. It could be good for playing the The Eye of Argon game for kids (try to read it out loud for as long as possibl ...more

"Zombie Butts From Uranus" was a terrible book by Andy Griffiths. It was about a boy named Zach who was training to be a butt-fighter. As he was training his test were very hard for him so he quit the butt-fighting academy. A couple days after that zombie butt landed on earth and started to attack earth. Zach was the only one who could stop them.
I really truely didn't like this book because I thought that it was stupid and really dumb. I thought it was stupid because of all the bad puns in the

Zach is a junior league butt fighter. He didn't win any simulator games so he ran away. He found a butt feeler and his butt can talk and detach itself. Its kind of creepy. She felt it and gave him some ketchup. He found about the zombie butts when he got to Mabel Town. His grandmother lives there. She was always prepared for war like this. His grandma was a famous butt fighter. Zach doesn't know that. They went to their attic and it was a butt fighter control room.A girl from the academy came in ...more

I read/finished this sequel yesterday/last night while I was in Tagaytay, getting ready for bed.

12:22AM--

To be honest, when I set myself up on rereading this sequel of The Day My Butt Went Psycho, I couldn't remember a thing about it. But as I continued reading it, I realized that many events seemed familiar. But I didn't remember anything major, so I still got to experience the thrill of reading this book, not knowing what was going to happen next.

This book may very well be filled with terms th

Zack is back along with the butts. Zombie butts from Uranus have been awaken by "accident". They invaded Earth under the command of the Great White Butt. Instantly the butt fighters got geared up and proceeded to stop these zombie butts, butt to their surprise they were unable to harm them. Their usual butt fighting techniques were useless against this new threat. They tried everything but nothing seemed to work...except for ketchup! With this new weapon they were able to hold the zombie butts o ...more

What can you say about a book that comes with a warning: "If you are a parent or a teacher or even if you're just over eighteen, put this book down now!You won't like it! You won't understand it! You wil be totally grossed out by it." TRUE!! "Recommended" in a Book Links article (May 2009) The Gross and the Gory: Making Reading Connections with Boys" that states very clearly that boys like action, adventure, and toilet humor.

I thought this would be a funny, quick read. Unfortunately I'm not a 3rd grade boy, and I just couldn't take the over the top toilet humor. I gave up after a mere 11 pages. Haha

This book is part of a series. Its about these kids who stop people from other planets. This butt can control the person he is on. Then when these kids realize that more people from a different planet are coming are zombie butts and they need to stop them.

I can connect this book the world because there are villains that need to be stopped. They are trying to stop them but the villain avoids them. In the world there are criminals and other bad things and the zombie butts are the criminals in the

It's not a very good book in terms of context but if you are looking for a quick fun book to read it is good. I may read the previous book just to understand the story.

I don't think that this book was great... I mean, it had the laughs, but overall, the plot of the story was not good, and I think the author confuses people with the made-up words that he makes. The book was a great laugh because it had a lot of fiction, such as a butt who actually talks. The book is about a boy named Zack who tries to save the world from a zombie butt invasion, after he had destroyed the Great-white butt in book 1.

This book is not recommendable to anyone of the human race. This book was so childish, yet it doesn't deserve to be on a child's hands. The book tells a story about a boy who saves the world from an invasion of Zombie Butts, sounds stupid doesn't it? It gets worse. There are dozens of made up words in this text as the author attempts to confuse you until you torch the book in a forest fire that you will eventually make after reading the first page.

In this novel, Zac's grandmother makes an appearance as one of the most famous bum hunters every known and used to be appart of one of the greatest bum fighting trio; The Smacker, The Kicker and The Pincher. Togehter they must stop a foreign race of bums from uranus (pun intended of course, Griffiths is cleaver like that) from zombifying the human race. A great sequal to The Day My Bum Went Phycho, a very funny read.

Sometimes you just need to read something ridiculous and mindless. I laughed time and time again when characters would get the words 'Uranus' and 'Your anus' mixed up.

I swear I must really be a kid in a grown-up's body...I just love butt humor. Or maybe it is because I have the poopiest baby ever. And she is so hilarious when she poops! You hear a 'squirt-squirt' and then the cutest little grunt ever.

Zack is on his way to becoming a first rate butt-fighter. He was defeat great butts, smelly butts and just straight up nasty butts. But there are new kinds of butts. ZOMBIE BUTTS FROM URANUS!!! They are smelly, round, big and undefeatable! It is up to one boy and his small butt to save the world which they end up doing! I loved this book because its so funny && smelly. (lol)

This was bought for me as a present on the strength of the title alone. I read the first book - The Day My Bum Went Psycho - first and found it to be pretty daft and this is just the same. This book is targeted at children who may find the references to bums and farts hilarious but I will not be reading the final volume of the trilogy

This book is about a kid and his butt. They go thrugh crazy adventures and meet crazy people and do the funniest things that you can imagine. This book will crack you up and do the craziest stuff ever. You will also experience how close you are with yor but.

Sadly, not nearly was lighthearted and the Captain Underpants series. These will NOT make my classroom library. His Campfire Weenies stories, however, are quite interesting. Those make the grade. But these other two were an bsolute waste of my time.
