    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.

    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.
