The Day My Bum Went Psycho (The Bum Trilogy Book 1) Kindle Edition
The delightfully silly series that inspired the television animation.
'This is my story.
It really happened.
It's all true.
Not even the names have been changed.
Like most people I took my bum for granted. I agreed to tell my story in the hope that others could learn from it. If this book can save even just one person from making the same mistake, then I will be happy.
The next bum it saves might be yours.'
Zack Freeman is ready to tell his story. The story of a boy, his runaway bum and some of the most dangerous bums in the world including kamikaze bums; nuclear bums; and Stenchgantor, the Great Unwiped Bum. With the help of The B-team (a crack bum-fighting unit comprising three of the best bum-fighters in the business: the Kicker, the Smacker and the Kisser), Zack will risk methane madness crossing the Great Windy Desert, death by stink-bog in the Brown Forest, and the perils of the Sea of Bums before finally descending into the heart of an explosive bumcano to confront the most psycho bum of them all-His own!

The other problem here is that the story makes absolutely NO sense. I can handle the idea that your bum can detach and run around by itself, but giant bums, swimming shark bums?? Where did they come from?? They didn't detach off anybody. And bums can fly by fart power, with enough force to carry a human, but humans can't fly when their real bums are attached - that's just bad physics. The story rambles endlessly, and just seems to peter out at the end. There are no "laugh out loud" moments to make this book worth reading.
Having to read this story to my children, I was constantly editing as I read, sometimes skipping whole paragraphs which were too disgusting or weird. I also had to constantly translate from American to English words, as the book was originally American, and they just changed "butt" to "bum" but left all the other American words unchanged.
My children and I decided to finish the book, but we were all relieved when it was over and we could move onto another book. I threw the book in the bin, as it is not even good enough to go the the charity shop.
I loved it
Probably the best book by Andy Grifiths
Going to read it again seriosly
