My Brother’s Famous Bottom
by Jeremy Strong
This book is about a little boy called Nicholas whose family is poor. To try to have free food, they make a mini-farm in the back garden which causes chaos in the house. One day someone comes to make a television programme about the neighbourhood and, while they are filming, Nicholas’s baby brother, Cheese, comes crawling out with nothing on.
‘That’s the one!’ she cried. ‘That’s the bottom I’m after. Darling, you have the most gorgeous bottom!’.
Nicholas’s dad has a plan to make some fast cash. Nappies! Some disposable-nappy people are looking for a beautiful botty for their new advert – and all Nicholas’s baby brother has to do is pass the audition. What could possibly go wrong?
This book was hilarious, particularly the dad, and this definitely appeals to children’s sense of humour! There are lots of books in the series and I am looking forward to reading more of these with my class in the future. If you are looking for a book to make you laugh, you will enjoy this!
