‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Best Bottom (The)
by Brigitte Minne
Age Range: Under_5
Who has the best bottom of all? It is a question that none of the animals can answer! Is it Peacock, with his magnificent tail? or Rabbit with her soft, fluffy tail? or Pig, with his corkscrew tail? or even Frog, who has no tail at all? No one can agree so the animals decide to hold a best bottom competition. Everyone
becomes fiercely competitive, but when the winner is finally announced, they are all in for a surprise!
This is an amusing story by Brigitte Minnie accompanied by striking double-spread illustrations of the animals by Marjolein Pottie. This is a book that children will find fun and ideal for reading aloud.
