Reviews

"The text is light, conversational, and funny; and the painterly patoots are lovely in their texture and shading.... By the end (ha!) we've learned a little about these remarkable creatures."
--The Horn Book

"This humorous title delivers just what it promises: fauna fawning over their own rumps. ...In Saito's delicate renderings, each bottom is distinct and, yes, beautiful."
--Kirkus Reviews

"From a cuddly round bunny bottom to a hippo's "so-o-o big" bum, Saito celebrates animal behinds in all their forms...there's not a trace of self-consciousness in this jaunty, no-nonsense exhibition of animal posteriors."
--Publishers Weekly

"With the frisson of the forbidden, it focuses on animals' amazingly stylish rear-ends--from fluffy to striped to spiky, with humorous charm and elegant illustrations."
--Toronto Star
