Now a series on Netflix.
Simon is children’s favourite cheeky rabbit! With bright and bold illustrations, the Simon picturebook series is intelligent, funny and adored by toddlers, preschoolers and school-aged children.
Once there was a little rabbit who could only say one thing…
In the morning his mother would say, “Time to get up, my little rabbit!”
He’d reply: “Poo bum!”
At lunchtime his father would say, “Eat your spinach, my little rabbit!”
He’d reply: “Poo bum!”
One day, he meets a hungry wolf.
Will Simon learn his lesson once and for all?
Absurdly humorous and irrepressible, Simon’s antics are guaranteed entertainment and will have children back for repeat readings — it’s too much fun to say the words “Poo Bum” again and again! While the surprise ending will have the whole family in hysterics, the message is clear, Simon knows perfectly well how to behave when he wants to. But it’s hard when there are so many funny words to say.
Perfect to read aloud and giggle together as a family or for beginning readers who will enjoy the bold and simple text.

Praise for Poo Bum
“I believe that entertainment is an overrated function of art and we should be challenged by what we view and read.” — Simon Pegg.
“I found it funny. Ten-year-old found it funny. Seven-year-old considered it hilarious and 2-year-old laughed because everyone else did. What couldn’t you like about a potty-mouthed rabbit?” — Sunday Star Times, New Zealand
“Scatological writing doesn’t usually impress me – but the plot of Poo Bum is hilarious. Stephanie Blake is a big seller in France. Find out why.” — The Listener, New Zealand
