I Need a New Bum and other stories by Dawn McMillan, Illus. Ross Kinnaird.

October 30, 2017

new bumI Need a New Bum and other stories by Dawn McMillan, Illus. Ross Kinnaird. Pub. Oratia, 2017.

Three short illustrated stories in rhyming text on the poo, bum wees theme that are certain to attract reluctant primary and intermediate readers particularly boys.

Many people are not happy with their bums and when a boy discovers a crack in his, he wonders how it got there and considers a range of replacements with great hilarity. It’s not permanent though as he discovers that his father has the same crack. Don’t we all?

Seagull Sid plots to get all the humans off his beach in the way that seagulls always have, only with accuracy and persistence. Once again great hilarity all round.

Doggy Doo on my Shoe is more of a city problem especially if you walk in the suburbs. People are not careful or respectful with their dogs and doggy doo on the shoe is a common sight and smell. Once again great hilarity with Ross Kinnaird’s illustrations hitting the funny bone with regularity.
