An amusing book singing the praises of having a bottom, with examples of lots of animals who have them. Good fun for little kids, but I can see parents getting tired of this one.

I love a cheeky book, and this is definitely one of those! The rhyming text has an adjective for the bottoms of a host of animals, a few humans and with some mythological ones thrown in as well.
It also has what appears to be a repeating chorus, but it's a shame there is no tune for it (I expected it to fit sing-a-song of Sixpence from the first line, but the rest doesn't fit).
