POO will always be around.

This facinating book ensures you'll always know where it goes...

'Where does the POO go... when you Flush?'
Trace the fascinating history of sewage from the beginning of time - learn how we dealt with sewage in western and eastern cultures... from pits and night soil to fully reticulated sewage systems and biosolids re-use. Sewage holds a special, almost macabre fascination and the management of sewage is a problem in every corner of the planet.

'Being a piece of POO is never easy. If you're not being flushed down the toilet or chucked in the bin you are left to rot in the grass or trampled on.'

This delightful book traces the history of Poo – the most natural part of life.

Why was Poo disposed of by the Romans, ignored by the English and coveted by the Chinese? Who invented toilet paper?

  • When was the year of the Great Stink?
  • Do you know what coprolites are?
  • How is sewage disposed of?
  • How many ways can Poo be recycled?

This narrative non-fiction approach is entertaining, educational and humorous, capturing our primal attraction with POO. Blending facts, fiction and fun, it is stunningly illustrated.

The best Poo book... since Winnie.

And you thought POO was something we didn't talk about...
