Summary

This uniquely crafted narrative nonfiction invites readers to follow the author into science labs, forests, hospitals, and landfills,  as the author asks: Who uses poo?  
 
Poop is disgusting, but it's also packed with potential. One scientist spent months training a dog to track dung to better understand elephant birthing patterns. Another discovered that mastodon poop years ago is the reason we enjoy pumpkin pie today.  And every week, some folks deliver their own poop to medical facilities, where it is swirled, separated, and shipped off to a hospital to be transplanted into another human. There's even a train full of human poop sludge that's stuck without a home in Alabama. 
This irreverent and engaging book shows that poop isn't just waste-and that dealing with it responsibly is our duty.

    The book, 'Moon Child' consists of a collection of carefully handpicked poems from the poet's vast collection along with her own hand-drawn sketches. 
     
    Poetry is about finding beauty in the details of one's day-to-day life and inspiring others to do the same. A world as beautiful and poetic like this is wasted when someone chooses to overlook a flower growing at the corner of the pavement or ignore the sweet songs that birds compose and perform sing.
