it was amazing

This book is more than you might expect.

Of course, it IS entirely about butts. I doubt there are more than two sentences in a row where the word butt is not used.

I picked up this book as a joke, it made me giggle like a little boy when I read the title. After reading a bit of it, I am very surprised.

I've read a few children's books after I was considered a grown up. They always felt like they were for children, with the most simplistic language. Griffiths does not do that.

While you might not find scrabble winning words, the way Griffiths strings together words is almost poetic. Slathering it on thick with puns and subtext. This books feels big and meaty, like the butts it contains.

For the target audience, this is fantastic.
