About the Author

Derick Wilder is the author of The Longest Letsgoboy and the founder of Reading Giraffe, a literacy initiative with the goal of creating lifelong readers by making books come alive. He has been writing for as long as he can remember, and endless hours in the children's section of the library with his daughter sparked his love for picture books. He lives in Fort Mill, South Carolina.

K-Fai Steele is the author-illustrator of A Normal Pig and the illustrator of Noodlephant and other books for young readers. She was a Brown Handler Writer in Residence at the San Francisco Public Library, a recipient of the James Marshall Fellowship at the University of Connecticut, and a recipient of the Ezra Jack Keats/Kerlan Memorial Fellowship at the University of Minnesota. She was born in Charlton, Massachusetts, and now lives in Lausanne, Switzerland (which Richard Scarry also called home!).


"The transgressively funny concept (plus plentiful puns and mentions of tush utility) will no doubt win over the target audience, but even more important is the portrait the book offers: one of a world in which questions serve as a common bond, curiosity is amply rewarded, and variety is the spice of life."-Publishers Weekly, starred review
"In an unexpectedly delightful shift in tone and topic from The Longest Letsgoboy (2021), Wilder gets philosophical on the subject of butts. . . . This fun little adventure is told in effortlessly cadenced rhyme with witty back-and-forth dialogue between a BIPOC father and daughter. Adding to the entertainment are Steele's weird and wonderful illustrations, which hide (Easter egg-style) outstanding bottoms on every page. . . . It's positively cheeky!"--Booklist
"The text is simple and stands out...[The illustrations are] really quite a feat...Yes, a bulldozer has a butt, in this comical read-aloud for children who love humor on the edge."?-School Library Journal
