Review:

Cinderella's Bum by Nicholas Allan is a "cheeky" celebration of the differences between people's bodies that will definitely strike a chord with anyone who's ever uttered the immortal line: "Does my bum look big in this?".

A little girl watches her older sister agonise about the size of her bottom when trying to squeeze into her swimsuit. She points out to her sister that people come in all shapes and sizes and that big bottoms can actually be quite useful. She goes on to demonstrate this by using famous people as examples--Santa Claus needs a big bottom for when he has to make unexpected crash landings in his sleigh, and Queen Victoria would have been lost without hers, being on the throne for so long. Of course, there are some instances where having a big bottom would be an occupational hazard—Houdini's career as an escapologist would have been cut short for certain! We learn that famous fairy tales would have been very different if they'd venerated the bottom as opposed to other parts of the body: "Cinderella had small feet but a big bum … so it's lucky Cinderella lost her shoe at the ball at not her knickers."

Cinderella's Bum is irreverent yet warm, complemented by Allan's lively watercolour illustrations. Suitable for ages five upwards.--Alison Drury
