A wildlife photographer follows up Whose Butt? (2012) with a fresh portfolio of posteriors. Showing no traces of fecal matter and only rarely even a glimpse of bare skin, the fuzzy or feathery fundaments on view belong to young creatures ranging from moose to mustang, cottontail to sandhill crane--all photographed in outdoor settings and all followed by longer-shot views of the whole animal, usually with a parent. The accompanying hints and nature notes are informative, if cutesy ("HANG ON! Baby opossums can hang by their tails, but as they grow, they become too heavy for upside-down fun"). In a more businesslike listing at the end, the author adds further comments about diet, range, and behavior for each, along with smaller headshots. Though any mention or image of "butts" will reliably get a rise from young audiences, overall this is more about baby animals in general than a specific portion of their anatomy. With the possible exception of the opossum's unlovely behind, more likely to elicit responses of "Cute!" than "Gross!" (Informational picture book. 4-6)
