              What should you do when you fall off your bike and your bum breaks into pieces? Collect them up, take them home and glue them together, of course! But then what happens when the pieces get stuck to the tray on which you're making the repairs? Join the popular character from I Nee...d a New Bum! as he discovers the joy and fun that can be had when you have a tray stuck to your bum! You can slide like a boss, you can be an ace at paintball, you can be a superhero, you can ride a geyser - and imagine how good you can be at surfing ... Dawn McMillan's rollicking rhyme is accompanied by Ross Kinnaird's reliably hilarious images, pulling the story along to a conclusion that encourages children to embrace and celebrate their differences. The authors Dawn McMillan is the much-loved author of numerous children's books including the hit I Need a New Bum! , Doctor Grundy's Undies and Home Child, also released in 2019. She lives in Waiomu, north of Thames. Ross Kinnaird is an illustrator and graphic designer whose books have been published in many countries, many of them in collaboration with Dawn. He lives close to the water on Auckland's North Shore.
