Poop! Ewwww!

No, don't say "Ewwww." Ask, "Whose poop is that?" This simple, and yes, charming book asks this question about seven examples of animal poop. By investigating visual clues, young readers can learn to identify the animal through its droppings. For instance, find a sample of poop with bits of bone and tufts of hair. Turn the page to learn it came from a fox!

Kelsey Oseid's illustrations are both accurate and beautiful. Backmatter includes further information about the poop and what scientists can learn from an animal's droppings.

Booklist Review: "This picture book delivers exactly what its title promises an examination of excrement, which also reveals a little something about the animal that left it behind. An opening two-page spread pairs the question Whose poop is that? with an illustration and description of a particular dropping. This sample might contain twigs and stems, old leaves, or bones and fur, for example. Once readers turn the page, the answer is revealed, along with some facts about the poop or the animal's diet. Whose poo is full of splinters? A panda's, due to its constant bamboo munching. Oseid's pen-and-ink illustrations are digitally colored, giving clear yet stylized renderings of the seven animals and droppings in question, including a coprolite (fossilized dung) and one trick poop (what is it really?!). A final spread gives bulleted Scoop on Poop and Animal Poop Facts lists for more detailed information. The kid-friendly illustrations and matter-of-fact tone make this title an informative, rather than a gross-out, pick, though that is certainly what will get kids reaching for the shelves.--Smith, Julia Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Guess the poop! Repeating the question of the title, Lunde and Oseid ask readers to identify six kinds of animal scat (plus an owl pellet), providing images of the droppings, animal tracks, and brief descriptions as clues. "Whose poop is that? It has a bunch of splinters in it," Lunde asks, opposite what looks like a pile of pickles. The answer: a panda. "A panda eats mostly bamboo," he continues. "A panda has to spend most of its day eating in order to get enough energy." In unflashy, mixed-media artwork, Oseid highlights animals that include a red fox, African elephant, Galápagos tortoise, and gull, as well as their environments. Gross-out details will provoke glee ("A rabbit sometimes eats its poop in order to digest its food twice") but kids will learn plenty about the variety and importance of animal waste, too. Ages 3-7.
