Poo In The Zoo: The Great Poo Mystery by Steve Smallman | Children's Book Review

[Ad/Gifted: We received a copy of this book for the purpose of this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.]

My children, like many others I assume, love a bit of toilet humour. Anything to do with poop especially, and they will be in fits of laughter.

Poo In The Zoo: The Great Poo Mystery had C and E (and even me at some points!) laughing at both the language and the pictures.

Blurb: SPLAT PATTER PLOP! Zookeeper Bob's super-duper pooper scooper has disappeared and the POO is piling UP! Is this a DOO-DOO disaster?

Or can Arabella Slater - Poo Investigator - save the day?

Review: This is the second book in the series but we haven't read the original, Poo in the Zoo, yet. After reading this one though, we will definitely be adding it to our bookshelf!

Zookeeper Bob McGrew has a little robot named Robbie that helps pick up all the poo that all the animals at the zoo leave behind - basically a little poop hoover!

One morning though, Bob wakes up, he can't find Robbie Robot and there is poo all over the zoo! What on earth has happened?

He enlists the help of Arabella Slater, PI (Poo Investigator) to help crack the case. 

This wonderful rhyming book is packed with poo jokes and beautiful illustrations (even if they do all contain poo!) and both my 7 year old and 5 year old found it absolutely hilarious. They especially loved the tales of what Arabella had gotten up to in the past.

We love the 'Dinosaur That Pooped...' books so if your little ones enjoy those, they will love Poo In The Zoo: The Great Poo Mystery!

This book will be published by Little Tiger on 9th July and can be purchased at bookstores for £6.99.
