Bums. We all have them and bestselling author (and old friend of Booktopia) Kate Mayes shows us why we should be proud of whatever kind of bum we have. This is her latest, must-have, laugh-out-loud children’s picture book. The Bum Book is without a doubt the cheekiest book of the year.
“I had a lot of fun writing this book,” says Kate. “I think there’s a lot about difference… it’s a celebration of all our bums.”
Just look at some of the gorgeous (and hilarious) illustrations that you can find inside The Bum Book:
“I think that this is a book that kids will come to themselves.” – Kate

About the Contributor
Before entering the exciting world of books, Bronwyn served in the Royal Australian Air Force, travelled extensively and worked (still does!) as a barista on the weekends. Books are her true passion. Bronwyn's debut fantasy novel Relic is coming out in 2019 with indie publishing house Talem Press. They are to publish her entire trilogy called The Relic Trilogy. In her spare time, Bronwyn writes, reads and enjoys keeping fit (which she undoes by eating loads of chocolate) with Martial Arts and personal training. She can't answer what her favourite book is but she has a soft spot for Peter Pan (J.M Barrie), Outlander (Diana Gabaldon), Stardust (Neil Gaiman), The Illuminae Files (Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman) and Six of Crows (Leigh Bardugo). Fantasy, sci-fi and YA make up the majority of her bookshelves.
