Anyone read it?? :lol:
Is that a book? LOL I thought the thread was going to be about how YOUR butt went psycho!
Me, too! I was ready for an action-packed story :lol:
Me three!! :haha:
OK, Mrs. A... you've got to tell us the general story line.
Yes, it's a book by Andy Griffiths. :lol: I'm just curious if anyone has read it.
It's an epic tale of one brave boy and his crazy, runaway butt..Strange Butt true!! It's rated G (Gross) and contains immature material not suitable for adults.
Sounds like a book my 5th grade boys would love!
That's an awesome book! My aunt gave it to me a few years ago. I loved it!

I bought it thinking it would be great for some of my non-reading boys. I read it first, and couldn't get through it. I wasn't a big fan of it myself. I wouldn't call myself a literature snob, but I just didn't find the writing to be all that good. I wouldn't be against my students reading it though.
I haven't heard of it, but in response to dfleming -- quality aside, I'm all for anything that will get kids excited about books. And if it means gross, immature stuff for the gross, immature kids, so be it!
I read that book a few years ago, mainly because I was curious about it after seeing the unusual title. I don't remember a whole lot about it that hasn't already been said. It was...interesting. :lol:
For the people that read it, could I put in it my classroom library? i think the boys would love it, but would any parents be offended do you think?

I have it in my classroom library. No parents have complained. It's not high-class literature, but boys definitely notice it and read it.
My daughter does own that book, but I haven't asked her opinions of it...she is 10.
