My Bottom Humour Picture Book Collection

I love bottom humour that's suitable for children of all ages.
 
I love reading it.
I love hearing it.
I love sharing it.
I love collecting it.
 
So I've decided it's time to share my personal bottom humour picture book collection that tackles farts, underpants, poo and pee in a very special way. I've read all these books with my children and they've made us laugh for hours. I know it's not for everyone and that's ok.
 
Feel free to let me know of other amazing children's 
picture books I can add to my collection.

1) Queen Victoria's Underpants
 
 
 A very funny story about the most famous underwear in the British Empire. Meet Lizzy, whose family are in the clothing industry. Very few people probably know that Queen Victoria made the wearing of underpants popular. At the beginning of her reign very few women wore them. But Queen Victoria made tartans, perambulators and chloroform fashionable. By the time she died just about every woman in Britain wore underpants like hers.
 

 
2) Who Flung Dung?
 
 
 Someone flings dung at Furley! Nobody is around to confess, so Furley goes on an investigation. 'Who flung dung?', Furley demands of everyone. They deny everything. As Furley becomes more and more frustrated, readers will giggle more and more loudly. But even though he's frustrated, Furley's not going to give up.
 
 
3) The Story of the Little Mole Who Knew It Was None of his Business
 
 
This picture book tells the tale of a little mole who wakes up one morning only to have one of the other animals "do its business" on his head. The mole then sets out to track down the culprit to exact his revenge in his own little way.
 
 
4) There's A Monster Under My Bed Who Farts
 
 
 Everyone says, 'It wasn't me!' But what if it REALLY wasn't you? What if it was the monster who lives under your bed? How much trouble can one little monster cause...From two amazing new talents comes a hilarious picture book that's guaranteed to be a runaway hit with both young and old.
