Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
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

From the Publisher

Griffith's fun gross-out adventure novel follows Zack Freeman, who awakens to see his rear end leaping out the window to lead a bum rally. Zack's butt urges bums to "assume our rightful positions on top of the neck." Zack searches for the "one person who can stop [the plan]," the Bum Hunter, and in the process meets up with legendary bum fighters like the Kisser and the Smacker-plus the Bum Hunter's tough daughter, Eleanor. As the team tries to stop the bums from erupting a disgusting bumcano (hint: it's not filled with lava), they encounter a stink tornado, swimming poopoises, the Stenchgantor, "also known as the Great Unwiped Butt"-and a traitor in their midst. Though Zack finally tells his bum, "Well, maybe if I'd taken better care of you... you might not have gone psycho in the first place," kids will gleefully discover there's no great lesson learned here. Some of Griffith's details are hilarious (a fluffy pink toilet seat cover is the perfect tool for trapping bums, who "are powerless to resist them"), others plain disgusting (Zack and Eleanor hitch a ride on an exploding bum pimple), but young readers will likely get a kick out of it all (there's even a glossary included). Ages 9-up. (Apr.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    My son and I laughed so hard!

    Christmas 2007, my b-friend and I were exhaustingly searching for gifts for our kids (his son was 8, mine 7). Both of our kids love to read, so we went to BN. I just happened to catch "BUTT" out of the corner of my eye (in the children's section of all places) and pulled it off the shelf. When I read the title I called my b-friend over. I thought he was going to just think I was crazy to suggest such a book for our youngsters, because we are older parents, I'm 35 and he is a little over 40. <BR/>I bought this one and he ended up buying two: "The Day My Butt Went Psycho" and "Butt Wars". He kept thanking me all the way home for spying those books.<BR/>Our kids love them. Throughout the first chapter my son and I were laughing so hard I didn't think we'd ever get through the entire story!<BR/>This book not ment for the serious only for people with a sense of humor! Awesome book.

    This book is great!!!

    My son and niece are crazy about this book. They ask me to read the book to them in the morning and evening. My son who does not like to read, is reading this book to himself. The book is very funny and gross. Even the children in his class beg me to read the book to them. This book is a definite hit with kids.

    11-year-old boys will love it!

    My son read this in less than a day -- he loved it and insisted on reading his favorite parts aloud, much to the disgust of his 14-year-old sister. A great way to encourage kids to read.

    Butts Comin' To Town!!!!!!!!!!

    I always thought this book was boring until I actually read it. It is about butts that comes off people's bodies and they wanted to rearrange people's head and bodies(switching the head's and butt's place of a person). Zack a boy works with the butt catchers to stop the Giant White Butt and also because the assistant ruler is Zack's own butt. They all try to stop those evil butts from switching everyone's head and butt.Read the book to see what happens to Zack on his buttcatching adventure!!

    the best book ever!

    Too bad there's no Zero Star option

    First, I must say that I am a reader of silly books. I fell into the trap of judging the book by it's cover and title. I just couldn't force myself to read this. It was unutterly annoying and stupid. I've made several attempts at reading, but failed. Gave to my neice for a second opinion and she concured. This book was a waste of time and money. Author should be put on trial for the murder of literature and attempted corruption of child.

    Butt Blah!

    I tried and tried to read it, but I just had to stop after the 5th page. It made no sense at all! No picture, no nothing! And besides, it was just stupid! (Remember: This is MY opinion.) It was CRAZY! I tried to read on because I love reading, and I didn't want to have a BAD book in my life. It was the only book. Ha!
