Chicken Butt’s Back!
Here at Little Sparrow we have many beautiful, charming, whimsical books… and then there’s this book: “Chicken Butt’s Back!” by Erica S Perl.
Unless you have a child with highly sophisticated humor you might not know the world’s funniest joke: “Q: What’s up? A: Chicken Butt”
Its funny, right? Well, maybe not to all of us – but its right at my level of humor, so i really enjoyed “Chicken Butt’s Back!” and i may have giggled like a 5 year old the whole way through.
Having not read the original “Chicken Butt” book i can only imagine the torture that the mum in the story has been through. The fun illustrations by Henry Cole really capture that world-weary expression we see on so many faces around the supermarket.
The simple Dr-Seuss-esque rhyming verse is ideal for early readers and as much as we might hate the toilet humour – you can’t deny the kiddos love it. And a funny book is a book that will be read and read and read again! So i give this silly, fun and ultimately heartwarming story book 10 butts out of 10.
