Tuckuses are raising a ruckus in this totally butt-crazy adventure from bestselling Aussie writer Andy Griffiths.
When Zack Freeman wakes up one morning, he's horrified to see his butt making an escape out the window, toward a midnight rear-end rally. Curious to see what his can is up to, Zack learns that the world's butts are staging a revolution -- they mean to take their rightful place on humans' bodies (on top), and his own butt is leading the effort! Soon, the buttless boy has joined forces with the counterrevolutionary B-Team, and the squad is making its way across the Great Windy Desert, through the Brown Forest, and to a brimming Buttcano, where all of the butts are gathering to launch themselves around the globe. Unfortunately, though, there's a traitor among the B-Team crew, and who's really behind the butts' war cries? Zack doesn't have much time before we're all permanently rearranged!
Packed with plenty of action and gross-out humor, this fast-paced novel will leave kids rolling in the aisles. Stenchgantor (the Great Unwiped Butt) and oozing butt pimples are just a couple of the treats in store, while back-of-the-book tips on responsible butt ownership and butt security will help young readers soothe their own potentially grumbling rumps. While not necessarily for high-brow literary types, The Day My Butt Went Psycho! is a seriously silly read for kids who love to laugh. Matt Warner
