Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Sure, there are plenty of other books about scats and tracks. My goal was to make one that was fun for kids. They'll enjoy reading about Michael and Emily's vacation and get all kinds of fascinating trivia from the "Straight Poop" sidebars scattered throughout the book, and they'll learn while they do it! Eli and I did our best to make it fun, and the team of rangers and naturalists that proofread the book kept it accurate. If your children ever wondered what critter left that pile of droppings, then they need a copy of "Who Pooped in the Park?"

From the Inside Flap

Watch where you step! Sometimes the animals that live in Yellowstone National Park are hard to find--but you can always find their poop!

Come along with Michael, Emily, and their family as they learn about the animals in the park from their scats (poop) and tracks (footprints). This delightfully illustrated children's book follows Michael--who is afraid of bears--and his family as they encounter signs of bison, moose, elk, deer, rabbits, wolves, mountain lions, badgers, and more.

The book also includes a handy reference chart with silhouettes, tracks, scats, and comments for all of the animals.

Author Gary D. Robson and illustrator Elijah Brady Clark have also produced "Who Pooped in the Park?" editions for Glacier National Park and Grand Teton National Park, and more will be coming out in 2005.

Lighthearted and fun, this book manages to be highly informative without bogging down.

I grew up wanting to be a "true" woodsman, but every book on tracking and animal scat identification I have ever seen reads like a college textbook -- certainly no fun for a kid to read. This one is different.

Written as the story of a family visiting Yellowstone Park, "Who Pooped?" hits all the bases. The kids learn how to identify the scat of the major critters in the park -- and, for example, why wolf scat has hair in it. They also learn how to identify the tracks of those same animals, with helpful details, like how to tell the difference between the tracks of elk and moose. The author has a great knack for making it all sound so simple and easy, while giving readers a great deal of information.

The most helpful stuff is the "background" on the animals. When you learn that mountain lions can keep their claws retracted, it is suddenly much easier to tell the difference between a wolf track and a mountain lion track. There are little tidbits all through the book, called "Straight Poop," with enough expert information to please parents who want a trip to be educational. And the story of the traveling family is cute and easygoing.

I must admit to an irresistible temptation to ask the author for a companion volume, one on identifying the tire tracks of monster SUVs in the parking lots of Yellowstone. Of course it should be titled "Who Parked in the Poop?"

Forget the toilet paper! This little book is great! Kids sure get a kick outta it and they actually learn something. Even outdoor wanna-be's might learn how NOT to say, "Here kitty, kitty", to a wolverine.

I bought this for my 4 year old grandson, along with a package of plastic wildlife animals. He loves the book and has his parents read it to him all the time. It's interesting (not just about poop) and includes a page with drawings of various animals along with track marks and poop in order to identify them.

We bought this book when we were in Yellowstone and my six years old loves it so much that we bought another one for our friend as a gift. It is a very fun book with lots of great information. Highly recommend it.

Such a fun book!!
If you find yourself traveling through Red Lodge as you head to the park (North East entrance) you have to take a few minutes to stop by Gary Robson's lovely little bookstore, Red Lodge Books &Tea, located on the right side of the quaint main street. You are likely to find him at the counter- he is funny and polite and happy to tell you about his ever expanding series (now 19 books) of "Who Pooped in the Park?"books- a spindle of which is prominently displayed near the counter. :) he's happy to sign your book- just ask!

This book truly will help my grandchildren identify scat and tracks. I would give this book a full five stars except it begins with a little boy who is frightened of grizzly bears. My 6-year-old granddaughter doesn't need any suggestion of being afraid of grizzlies. Her older brothers (ages 12 and 13) will adore the in-depth discussion of poop! We'll need to set aside several hours for tracking while we're at Yellowstone.

Back in 2005 my mom and step-dad got the book Who Pooped in the Park? by Gary D. Robson for my kids.

It’s the story of a family on a trip to Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. The son is afraid he’ll be eaten by a grizzly bear, but his parents explain how there aren’t any grizzly bears left in Colorado. Then the parents take the kids on a hike to teach them how to find out which animals have been where by identifying all kinds of marks, especially scat (POOP!!!).
