I Need A New Bum!

Publisher: Scholastic

The boy in this bright and bonkers picture book has a problem – he’s just noticed his bum has an almighty crack in it. He’s not sure whether he broke his bum whilst riding his bike or whizzing down the bannister, but one thing’s for sure – he needs a new one!

Luckily, when it comes to finding a new bum, the possibilities are endless – he could have a delicate watercolour-painted backside, or a shiny chrome bum-per. He could have a handy robo-bum, or a titanium alien rear! Which bum will our hero plump for?

Made famous by the now-viral video of the Scottish Granny reading this to her grandchild and collapsing into laughter, this is a simple rhyming story that you’ll certainly be asked to read over and over again, whilst imaginative illustrations from Ross Kinnaird show the sheer breadth of choice when choosing a new bum. Perfect for toilet-humour fans and guaranteed to have children in hysterics.
