After the international success of The World’s Biggest Fart, comes this hilarious animal poop contest.
The horse thinks that his poop is the best in the world. But the cow thinks that hers is better. The pig, the goat and the duck disagree... Which is the best poop in the universe? The animals decide to organize a poop contest! When the big day arrives, the contestants come from far and wide and there are poops of all kinds… round, large, flattened and even square! But who will be the winner in the Great Poop Contest?

Such an odd story. I can see this being a bit hit with boys who may be a bit more hesitant to read. It was beyond ridiculous at time, but still an interesting one to read.
💩 This book is ridiculous, engaging, and fun! Potty humor is almost always appealing to younger readers. I feature a lot of poo-related books like this because they can encourage and instill a love for reading that can last a lifetime.
💩 The images of a bunch of animals squatting to take a poo will make you and your kiddos laugh! You’ll even get to see robot poo and alien poo!
💩 Readers will also learn something, even if they don’t realize it. Each poo is different for each animal, so technically this book informs readers on how to identify animal droppings. I don’t know if that is universally helpful information, but I guarantee if you ever see square poo in the wild, you’ll remember that it came from a wombat!
💩 I loved this book. I’m confident kids will love it too.
Thank you @NetGalley and NubeOcho for an eARC of this book, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
Adorable illustrations. And what kid doesn’t love potty humor?! I finished reading it and my 5 & 8 year asked to read it again immediately.
This was a cute twist on the fact that everyone poops and that’s ok. My 3 year old son thought it was hilarious and he couldn’t stop talking about poop after. It was very colorful and cute. It would be a fun daytime story but wouldn’t recommend it at bedtime since it might rile up the kiddos.
This was a book that was silly but fun to read. It didn’t have a lot of outward meaning but lots of undertones that were good for talking about with my four year old. How everything poops but it’s not the same. It tell you about green panda poop or square wombat poop. It also includes robot and alien poop. I have a son and already he finds this topic hilarious so It was a good way to humor him but still have teachable moments.
The Great Poop Contest is a silly and engaging book for young children. My four year old thought this book was so funny. He especially enjoyed the robot. I enjoyed the inclusion of the wombat. An animal that poops squares is a must in a story about poop. If you need a lighthearted, fun book for your kids or classroom this is the book.
Pooping is something that most of us do on a fairly regular basis. But do you ever stop to think about if you have award-winning poop? Probably not. But you should! Take some inspiration from the animals in this book! In this grossly accurate book, you get to see the shapes, colors, and sizes of different types of animals' poop. There's even some (literal) out-of-this-world poop to see! Fans of toilet humor and animals will love this book. It has bright, colorful illustrations and competitive animals that wanna know the answer to the question, "Who has the best poop?"
A hilarious book full of fun illustrations young readers will want to read over and over again. What a creative idea for a book about something that all kids love to talk about. The illustrations are equally as amusing, yet completely suitable for a picture book. Readers will be left with a curiosity about what animals do in fact talk about when they’re together. A lighthearted, fun read!
This picture book will be a hit for the fart lovers! I can see a lot of children laughing and having fun with this picture book. I can't wait to see it go out!
This book was so cute and silly and my kids couldn’t stop laughing! Getting to read the word poop so many times and seeing the different poos from different animals was interesting. WHO KNEW WOMBATS POOPED CUBES?!!! Definitely a new favorite for story time!
This book will be a hit with young readers, especially those that love potty books! The illustrations were very cute and colorful. The writing was just okay, and I've read better funny picture books about poop. That said, little ones will enjoy this nonetheless!
As a retired children’s librarian, I remember how popular books about farts were. In fact that was the topic of Rafael Ordonez’ The World’s Biggest Fart. This author knows kids’ humor, because The Great Poop Contest is sure to get young readers giggling. Parents would sometimes ask for books on toilet training and this funny book could alleviate fear of or resistance to using the potty. This author’s books are also available in Spanish.
I've been reviewing children's books for awhile now. As both a parent and an educator, I'm always trying to find a book to grab the attention of that ONE kid who just doesn't want to find the joy in reading and books. I think this one is going to be a hit! When it comes to kids, you can't go wrong with poop. My 8 year old is the best book dealer around, and he wants me to buy this book for all of his friends and cousins birthdays :)
We all poop! What a great way to show that every thing alive poops and it doesn’t need to be embarrassing. Fun little rhymes and a mixture of animals and of course poo.
Children LOVE books about farting and poop and underwear, so I can definitely see this one being popular at my library. I'm sure some parents will be like, "Really Billy, another book about poop???" But I think they will also secretly be laughing along with their child when they read this together.
