Bottoms are always funny. And if you’re five, they’re apparently even funnier.
Chicken Cheeks by Michael Ian Black is essentially a roll-call of animal bottom names. It’s fanciful, not scientifically correct – for example there’s the “Moose caboose”, the “Polar bear derriere”, the “Penguin patootie” and the book, according to my (naughty) five-year-old, is “HILARI-ARSE” (I hope your kids don’t talk like that!).
As we learn all sorts of alternative words for bottom, a simple story unfolds – it’s a cute story but kids will return to this book not for the ending, but all the ‘ends’.
