The Very Merry Poop Christmas

Holt. Sept. 2022. 40p. Tr $14.99. ISBN 9781250837103.
Gr 1-2–This may be the most unique holiday picture book of the year. Emoji fanatics will instantly be drawn to the cover of this Christmas tale, which shows a delighted poop emoji wearing a Santa hat. The scene is set in the North Pole, where it is almost Christmas time. The “must-have” toy of the year for kids is anything with the poop emoji on it! One big problem, though: Santa does not think this potty humor is funny. To try to help Santa see the humor of poop, Mrs. Claus decorates the whole North Pole with poop emojis and potty-themed activities. Readers will love seeing Mrs. Claus and the elves try to change Santa’s point of view on the smelly emoji, and illustrations provide a colorful, retro feel. Back matter includes a recipe for “Reindeer Dropping Treats,” which readers are advised is “Not real poop!”
VERDICT Little ones who think potty humor is absolutely hilarious will definitely enjoy this book.
