Poopendous!  Pops Up in New Hope!


Free: Meet acclaimed children’s book author Artie Bennett on Saturday, November 9, at Farley’s Bookshop, 44 South Main St., New Hope, Pennsylvania (215-862-2452), from 1 pm to 4 pm. Artie, author of the best-selling, highly praised The Butt Book, will be there to sign and discuss—and read!—his superfun new book, Poopendous! Hailed as the Dr. Seuss of your caboose, Artie will also sign and discuss his picture-book classic, The Butt Book. You won’t want to miss it!

“Everyone poops—yes, it’s true—from aardvarks to the humped zebu.”

     Artie Bennett, author of the award-winning and much-acclaimed The Butt Book, delivers the inside scoop on every type and use of poop in his “number two,” spanking-new picture book, Poopendous! In hilarious verses, with eye-popping illustrations, Poopendous! relates the many, often remarkable uses of poop throughout the world while paying homage to its prolific producers, from cats to bats to wombats! Virtuoso illustrator Mike Moran gives us a veritable Noah’s Ark of critters doing their less-than-solemn doody. So pick up your pooper-scooper and come along for a riotously rib-tickling ride. You just may agree that poop is truly quite . . .  poopendous!

      As Artie Bennett says, “Now that The Butt Book was out and selling like hotcakes, I cast about for the perfect follow-up and I thought that, perhaps, a children’s book in verse about poop would be the ticket. In fact, what more fertile topic could there be for one’s ‘number two’ picture book. And when the word ‘poopendous’ came to me out of the blue, I knew I had both the title and the final spread for my next book. Curiously, just like with The Butt Book, I now sat down to write a memorable, rousing ending first before working my way back through the manuscript.”
