This is the cover of the book. And no, that’s not hair on top of his head, that my friends in Blogville, is poop. Yeah, wait, it gets better.
Notice that it's the "Plop-up" edition? That's actually very important to note.
The Little Mole then goes off in search of the creature who had the audacity to poop on his head. This was the general format of the book.
The cow one really kinda grossed me out. After learning about the poop of many other animals (of which Goat poop was the most appealing) the Mole asks some flies for help.
Anyway, SPOILER ALERT! the Mole finds out it’s the Dog, so he walks over to the dog house, climbs up on it, and proceeds to poop on the dog’s head.
I was laughing my face off. I’ll admit it. All day I was wondering what I would blog about and then this happened. Honestly, I don’t know whether to find it funny or revolting, because as you saw, they describe the poop’s colour, shape and sound as it hits the ground. A book about pooping on one another. I think I may have been trying a bit too hard with my novel writing. But then again, I suppose it is funny and... it does teach kids not to poop on one another? Scatology for beginners?
Personally I’m really curious to see what she brings in to class next week. She has this thing with an Australian book called “Dougal the Garbage Dump Bear” but apparently she’s working us up to that one. It made for an interesting first day back. I’ll give her that.
I can't believe I have three blog entries written about poop... so embarrassed.
