Certainly, the book in question is meant to be humorous for a young audience, and fellow educators might reasonably question if it was the optimal choice for this particular occasion,” the organization said.

I Need A New Bum By Dawn McMillan |The Works I Need A New Bum By Dawn McMillan |The Works

The whole idea was as hilarious as it was preposterous, so I confess I did come into this already already biased towards the writer and artist, and they did not let me down, either one of them. Of course, I'm way to old for this kind of a book, but that didn't prevent me from maximizing my enjoyment and having some fun with it.

I'm not really a fan of the illustration style, however, particularly the way the boy was drawn. I did like the use of color, though. Price said school officials told him they feared complaints from parents and Martin said he had been “unprofessional”. Price told the Times he had a lawyer and would fight his firing.Goodreads review link: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/999476413 Blog review link (scheduled Sept 17): http://thebookshelfgargoyle.wordpress.com/2014/09/16/a-cheeky-read-it-if-review-i-need-a-new-butt/ I can assure you right now that your kids will love this book. Anything irreverent concerning body parts or body sounds are always a hit with kids. They will giggle, they will laugh and they will want this book to be read over and over again because it is just plain silly and funny....the perfect kid-combo.

I Need a New Bum (board book) (The New Bum Series)

You’ll see that I do a lot of readers for schools. I enjoy doing these. They’re like a story and a puzzle combined. The story is the most important part but there are lots of reading level challenges to get right too. The readers go all over the world, with some of them translated into other languages. I wasn't really sure how the book would be able to pull off being funny without being gross, but it was able to do so. I actually liked the different types of butts he considered, especially the arty-farty butt. I found myself laughing a few times and my infant son seemed to enjoy it too as he laughed a couple of times, although I'm not sure if he was laughing at the drawings or at the verses.But not all my stories come from nature. I keep a watch on what’s happening around me and I listen to what people say. Sometimes a joke can give me an idea. But most of my stories come from my own experience…the happy times, the sad times, and the special people I’ve known. This is the kind of book that can engage kids into reading books. The illustrations are colourful, relevant to the text, and funny. The story itself is the right level of sillyness and playfulness that you want in a kids book. Not surprisingly it abounds in bum and fart jokes, and even has some bum puns. Admittedly, the text may not earn the author a spot in Poet's Corner, but then again, this is not supposed to be high poetry. Come and see us sometime. Bring your swimming gear and your fishing rods. If you let me know you’re coming I’ll make you some hokey-pokey biscuits. I will also put here that this book came to my attention when I read a review on my Goodreads feed (thanks Gregg) which stated that Toby Price, a Mississippi vice-principal had been fired because he read this book out to a bunch of elementary school kids (lower primary). It seems the school administrators are not amused by bum and fart references.
