Artie Bennett is the executive copy editor for a children's book publisher and he writes a little on the side (but not the backside!). He would be hailed as the "Dr. Seuss of your caboose," with the publication of "The Butt Book," his first "mature" work. "The Butt Book" was showered with praise and won the prestigious Reuben Award for Book Illustration. He then answered the call of doody with his "number two" picture book, "Poopendous!" which published to great acclaim. Hmmm. Do you sense a theme? However, he took a slight detour with mhis next picture book, a more traditional, though no less hilarious, storybook entitled "Peter Panda Melts Down!" which came out just as panda fever was sweeping the nation. But then he got right back on track with the uproarious, explosively funny "Belches, Burps, and Farts--Oh My!" In 2018, the merriment continues with the publication of a side-splitting joke and riddle book: "The Universe's Greatest Dinosaur Jokes and Pre-Hysteric Puns." Its companion, "The Universe's Greatest School Jokes and Rip-Roaring Riddles," will publish in 2019. He lives deep in the bowels of Brooklyn, New York, where he spends his spare time moving the car to satisfy the rigorous demands of alternate-side-of-the-street parking.
