I have to admit I more than laughed when approached by Artie Bennett asking if I would like to review his number 2 book, Poopendous. It is his second book but his number 2 book has a second meaning because the book is about poop. If you have kids, you know that it is not uncommon for poop to be a subject of many conversations so this book is of great interest to them. It is funny but covers all kinds of poop and some interesting facts like monkeys throw poop when they are stressed or that termites build their homes out of poop or that at county fairs cow poop is just great for tossing and how fly poop is just specks. If your children are like mine this book will have great appeal and you will probably be asked to read it again as I was right after the first time. If you are looking for an unusual book, filled with facts about number 2 then this is for you!
Rhyming couplets feature Professor Poopdeck and two young friends as he takes them on a type of poop safari. Words for poop (i.e. guano, number two, ca-ca), its forms and styles (cubes, tubular, wet and dry), and myriad of uses (i.e. souvenirs, a means of tracking and marking, housing insulation, food, fertilizer, fuel) are all conveyed with humor and a certain demand for respect. It’s a book that says: Don’t just flush this stuff away! While it may dismay and stink, there’s more to this stuff than you might think!
