The scoop on poop

Here’s the pooper-scooper of the century: Arty Bennett is introducing his number one book on number twos, “Poopendous!,” at the Children’s Museum of Manhattan on March 31.

“Everyone poops — yes, its true — from aardvarks to the humped zebu,” writes Bennett ever so eloquently on this topic that’s sure to be a hit with the kids. This Brooklynite’s second picture book is full of humorous verses that deliver the inside scoop on all the uses for poop, and it features eye-popping illustrations by Mike Moran.

After a reading of “Poopendous!,” share a stinky joke or two, and have a butt-kicking good time making your own book and playing the “Whose poo are you?” matching game.

Bennett will sign copies of his book and meet with other poop aficionados, preferably those ages 5 and older, from 4 to 5 pm.

“Meet the Author: Artie Bennett” on March 31 at 4 pm at the Children’s Museum of Manhattan, 212 West 83rd St. between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue in Manhattan, (212) 721-1223. Free with museum admission of $11 for adults and children; $7 for seniors, and free for children under 12 months. For more, visit
