Artie Bennett is an executive copy editor by day and a writer by night. He is the author of several popular picture books: The Butt Book, his first “mature” work, a bona fide classic and winner of the Reuben Award; Poopendous!, his “number two” picture book; Peter Panda Melts Down!, an adorable departure from derrières and doo; the explosively funny Belches, Burps, and Farts—Oh My!; What’s Afoot! Your Complete, Offbeat Guide to Feet, which will knock your socks off; and an inspirational biography in prose of a hapless but beloved racehorse, The True Story of Zippy Chippy: The Little Horse That Couldn’t. He is also the author of two riotous joke and riddle books: The Universe’s Greatest Dinosaur Jokes and Pre-Hysteric Puns and The Universe’s Greatest School Jokes and Rip-Roaring Riddles.
He and his wife, Leah, live deep in the bowels of Brooklyn, New York, where he spends his time moving his car to satisfy the rigorous demands of alternate-side-of-the-street parking and shaking his fist at his neighbors. The Show Me Librarian says, “Bennett’s use of rhyme is excellent; his stanzas flow and exude joviality in a manner that few writers since Dr. Seuss have truly mastered. Simply put, these books are a joy.” The Huffington Post says, “It appears there is no topic Mr. Bennett can’t make funny and educational.”
