A Thai cookbook has won this year's Diagram Prize for oddest book title of the year.

Cooking With Poo is written by Bangkok chef Saiyuud Diwong whose nickname is Poo - which is Thai for "crab".

She runs a cookery school for locals and tourists in the city's largest slum, alongside the charitable organisation that published the book.

The 114-page book beat six other titles to be voted the winner in a public vote on The Bookseller's website.

Voted in second was Mr Andoh's Pennine Diary: Memoirs of a Japanese Chicken Sexer in 1935 Hebden Bridge by Stephen Curry and Takayoshi Andoh.

Scott D Mendelson's The Great Singapore Penis Panic and the Future of American Mass Hysteria came in third.
