Always Lots of Heinies at the Zoo by Ayun Halliday, illustrated by Dan Santat; Disney – Hyperion Books; 2009.
“Heinies, everybody’s got one, and zoo residents just love flaunting them. No matter where you go, there they are. Butts. Tushes. From feathery to furry, from demure to docacious. And now a BEHIND-the-scenes look at why we really love the zoo.”

This colorful, rhyming picture book is hilarious. I never knew there were so many ways to talk about the backside. From end papers to end papers this book shows off the zoo from a whole new point of view. And check out the back flap, the pictures of the author and illustrator show their “best” side too!
