What Do They Do With All That Poo?

Illustrated by Allison Black

There are so many different animals at the zoo, and they each make lots and lots (and sometimes LOTS!) of poo.

So what do zoos do with all of that poo? 

This laugh-out-loud picture book explores all kinds of zoo poo, from cube-shaped wombat poo to teeny tiny worm droppings, and all of the places it ends up, including in science labs and your back garden!

Welcome to the wonderful world of poo! Take a whiff and learn something new...

Jane Kurtz was born in Portland, Oregon, but when she was two years old, her parents decided to move to Ethiopia, where she spent most of her childhood. Jane speaks about being an author at schools and conferences—in all but eleven of the United States, so far, and such places as Uganda, Nigeria, Kenya, France, Germany, Romania, England, Indonesia, Cambodia, the Philippines, and Japan. She helped start Ethiopia Reads (EthiopiaReads.org), a nonprofit that is planting the first libraries for children in Ethiopia. She is the author of many books for children.
