Master Poo is here to teach you the proper way. In the past, there have been many books on how to poop, but books on how to wipe one's bottom have been rare. How many pieces of toilet paper does one need to wipe his bottom clean? How does one wipe and in what posture? Parents find it bothersome or are embarrassed to explain it in words, so they tend to evade the topic. This book specifically and thoroughly describes how to wipe one's bottom along with a funny story of the superhero Ripperboy. As you laugh along, you'll have mastered a daily cleaning habit.

4. About the Author and Illustrator

[Written/Illustrated by Kim Hyojeong]
Ever since I fell in love with picture books in a library, I’ve studied and worked hard to create one myself. Because a life is a sum of choices, I wrote A Blooming Flower to highlight that no matter what choices you make, what’s most important is to have faith in yourself and your decisions. I wrote and illustrated Floating Cloud and illustrated I Want to Be a Monster.
