When Scottish Granny’s reading of I Need a New Bum! became a social media smash last September, the New Zealand bestseller turned into an international hit as well — with the US version selling out and Scholastic UK rushing an edition out before Christmas.
A good thing, then, that Thames author Dawn McMillan had a sequel already on the go.
After North Shore illustrator Ross Kinnaird added his quirky touch, the new book about a new bum is ready to rock bookstores worldwide — with NZ publication on Wednesday 9 October.
I’ve Broken my Bum! follows the popular character from the first book as he deals with a bum that breaks into pieces when he comes off his bike, then gets stuck to the tray he’s using to make the repairs.
Kids will love his exploits as he discovers the fun to be had with a tray stuck to your bum.
Dover Publications will publish the book as I Broke my Butt! in the US and Canada,next week, with Scholastic readying its UK edition for January 2020.
Meanwhile, new editions of I Need a New Bum! are on the way in Korean and Italian.
