Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 1-3-In rhyming couplets, Professor P. Poopdeck gives readers "the inside scoop on every type and use of poop!" For example, termites pile their poop high in mounds, while "dung beetles roll it into balls/To gobble up when hunger calls." Some creatures "use poop to mark their scent" or to signal, "this is MY turf-STAY AWAY!" The cartoon-style pictures are lighthearted and entertaining, but really-should illustrations about poop be anything but fun? Larger libraries looking to increase circulation to young patrons who laugh at any mention of the word will want to consider this offering. Pair it with Dav Pilkey's "Captain Underpants" books (Scholastic) and Taro Gomi's Everyone Poops (Kane/Miller, 1993) for a poop-tastic display.-Lisa G.

I got this book for my 6 year old niece and she loves reading it! At that age, poop, pee and farts are the funniest thing on earth, but this book is more educational than just a bunch of silly poop jokes. It's all about different types of animal poop and how its used around the world...yes, used! (manure fertilizer for example). But of course the wacky illustration of the monkeys flinging poop made her laugh out loud. The rhymes are easy for a kid her age and the pictures are vibrant, cheerful and very funny!

Last year I reviewed Artie’s The Butt Book. Earlier this year he approached me to review his new book Poopendous. I admit the title had me rolling my eyes – Poopendous: The Inside Scoop on Every Type and Use of Poop – but I have a son who I thought would likely enjoy this book. After all it seems that burping, farting & pooping are subjects young boys find hilarious.

The rhyming text was easy to read and the pictures were cute. Obviously this book won’t appeal to everyone but if you have a young reluctant reader this would a book you could try. It’s one I didn’t mind reading and my 3 youngest kids all enjoyed it. It’s more “silly” than it is “gross”. They rated it 3.5 to 4 stars.

Poop is yucky, poop is foul.
Step in poop and you will howl.
To read this book, you must be strong.
Just hold your nose and come along!

Rating: 4 Stars – Great book for the intended audience.

I’ll be honest, I was a bit wary of this book, but Artie Bennett has once again surprised me with his ability to take an often thought icky or awkward topic and explore it with such captivating pizzazz! In Poopendous, Professor Poopdeck takes us on a poop safari, exploring the sides to poop that we don’t often consider.

From the various words used for poop, to its many uses, Poopendous covers it all! Once again, Bennett uses funny, clever rhymes to tell his story, and he is a master at word choices, picking the absolute best ones. Like The Butt Book, this book is in no way inappropriate or gross (even if its subject is icky!). Bennett is so good at finding the balance between amusing and educational, and Poopendous is especially engaging. Little readers will certainly laugh-out-loud at the book’s charming humor, but they will also learn a great deal...I know I did!

Mike Moran’s illustrations wonderfully bring Bennett’s words to life! Moran’s bright, cartoonish pictures are absolutely hysterical. Each living creature depicted is given such amusing and captivating expressions. Moran’s illustrations are total poop...which, in this instance, is a very very good thing!

I never imagined the topic of poop could be so delightfully engaging, but Bennett has made it so. Approached with humor and thought, this icky topic has been wonderful explored in Poopendous!

My eight year old daughter loved this book because it was about a subject that she loves to talk and joke about! She also liked the drawings a lot!

It's true: little kids love to talk about poop. Parents can help them channel that attraction, and get them talking and laughing and learning abut poop all at the same time with the help of a new picture book for ages 4 and up called Poopendous. Written by Artie Bennett, who also wrote The Butt Book, Poopendous uses rhyming couplets to help kids learn about a few facts about the stuff that comes out of every animal's body.

The story takes us on a journey with Professor Pip Poopdeck, who is full of fun facts such as "Poop from critters is called dung, and monkey dung is sometimes flung." Or, "Camel poop is desert-dry. Wet poop comes from birds on high." Mike Moran's colorful illustrations are funny too. Every page features the professor and his two students, a girl and a boy, as they travel the world to find out facts about poop. You see mice and frogs and aardvarks, dogs and hippos and termites all happily getting down to business.

Poopendous is sure to delight kids and the adults who read to them. I highly recommend it.
