This is about growing up, and finding new versions of yourself, and the people who bear witness to your metamorphosis. If you have sisters, I’m begging you to read it. Also, I mean – look at the cover.

Yeah, the title got me too. I cried laughing at this book but that's no surprise because it has poop in the title - it knows it's funny. But then you flip the page and learn a valuable lesson about accepting yourself, sticking up for others, and finding the weird in everybody. You'll learn about different insects and have fun and warm your heart all in a matter of a few colorfully illustrated pages. Give it a try!
