Love It or Hate It, This Book Is About Butts.

It's interesting to look through the reader reviews for this book; I don't know that I've ever seen a book veer as wildly between 1 and 5 star reviews. The lower ratings often express dismay and outrage at the book's subject matter, which, given its title, may strike one as a bit silly. "This book is about butts? What trash!" Not only is this Australian book about butts (the title originally used "bum"), but the word "butt" is in virtually every sentence. If you or yours enjoy scatological Aussie humor, you'll love this. As a middle school teacher, I've seen this book in so many hands, I felt obligated to read it. I may have regretted my decision when the book's main character and his pal ride an exploding butt pimple, but I stuck in there. So to summarize: The Day My Butt Went Psycho is funny, and it's about butts. Be warned. Also recommended: The Big Book of Boy Stuff

Butt kicking is all the rage!!!!

This book is just plain funny! For those who have wrote reviews about this book and were offended by the word "BUTT" throughout the story, all I can say is "What did you expect?" Yes this book deals with words like butt, fart and the great white butt along with a host of too many to mention. But if you have a open mind and aren't bothered by a little off beat, non-offending humor, then it's sure to please. If you like Dav Pilkey's "Captain Underpants" then you're going to love this book too. I read it to my eight year old son when I put him to bed at night, and he complained every time when I told him it was time to go sleep. He enjoyed it so much, that he re-read the book himself, over the summer months. The sequel is no where near as well thought out as "Psycho," but it's a funny read too. So are all of the other Andy Griffiths books. If you take the time to look beyond the so called "non-appropriate humor" some reviewers have refered to, you'll find yourself laughing throughout this read.

Sure to become a butt classic

This book from Australian author Andy Griffiths (of Zombie Butts from Uranus fame) just goes to show you how far things have come in the young reader genre since I was a kid 40 years ago. Back then it was more like Tom Swift, the Hardy Boys, Dr. Suess, and Dr. Doolittle. But there wasn't anything as raucous and outrageous as this funny, farcical story about wayward butts and their butt-shenanigans from Griffiths.The story follows 12-year old Zack, who discovers one night his butt can detach itself and go wandering around the town at night on its stumpy little legs, hanging out with other wayward butts and getting into trouble such as mooning passersby and causing accidents, and perpetrating other butt pranks. Zack has to bring back his butt before it gets into more trouble and the judge throws his butt in the slammer. This is only the tip of the iceberg, however, and Zack soon discovers that there is a widespread butt conspiracy that threatens the peace and tranquility of the entire town and that must be stopped no matter what the cost.Griffiths never misses an opportunity to use every bit of butt wordplay or gag he can throw in, which is a big part of the book's fun and humor. For example, you'll meet cluster butts, kamikaze butts, stinkants, buttcatchers, and even the fearsome Stenchgantor, "the Great Unwiped Butt," who lives in the Brown Forest--which used to be the Great Black Forest before he arrived and polluted it with his--shall we say, gaseous and foul emissions. A great world-wide army of feral butts is forming, "the greatest buttcano in the history of the world." Zack joins the butt-bashing and butt-busting B-Team (Butt Team) that includes the Kicker, the Kisser, and the Smacker, who all " the smell of freshly smacked butt in the morning." Zack is armed with a fearsome butt-busting weapon, the 4502-LL ("Laxative Launcher"). As if that weren't enough, there are also Butt-piranhas, poopoises, and Butt-sirens, and the Great White Butt, who has never been defeated.That's just a few of the butt-based ideas and gags. A bit of a low-brow mindset and wit will help you to get the maximum laughs out this book of bawdy butt badinage and butt hijinks--as long as you don't turn into a real buttinsky yourself.* :-)*Sorry, I couldn't resist. "Badinage" means light, playful banter.

You'll laugh your butt off !

I have a 6 year old son, and from experience I found that the imagination, attention and humor levels that little boys posses make it more difficult to find books of interest, especially when they'd rather be playing outside,or putting whoopie cushions under Dad's seat. I stumbled across this book at a book store and before I could finish reading the back cover, my son had grabbed it out of my hand (after seeing the word BUTT ) and began reading it himself. The "rated G for Gross" grabbed him right away. Immediately he tore into the first page and was hooked. It's a little above his reading level, but because he's so interested in the story it's encouraged him to really work on his reading skills. My entire family works in the education business, and we recently had a family gathering at which time my son pulled out his "Butt" book, and after a few minutes the whole family was in HYSTERICS ! It became an evening of passing around the book and taking turns reading chapters. The silly nature of this book doesn't stop after the first page like other books we've tried. I look forward to buying many more books from this author. I highly recommend this book, you'll laugh your Butt off !

This is one of the Funniest Books EVER!

I'm 25 years old. I have a BA in Psychology. And I still think that this is the funniest book in the world. I picked it up in the bookstore and lost complete control after I read the first few pages and couldn't stop laughing out loud.I work with 4th graders and I can't wait to bring this into the classroom. It's good to see a book that kids are going to love to read because it's so funny.
