Now young children can read along with the paperback and CD edition of this bestselling picture book, which teams up the irrepressible Jeanne Willis with prize-winning illustrator Adrian Reynolds.

'Who's in the loo? There's a very long queue. Is it an elephant having a poo?'

If your house has many occupants, then this witty rhyme from the irreverent and observant pen of Jeanne Willis will resonate profoundly. Adrian Reynolds's exuberant illustrations highlight the fun!

Read along with the audio CD to bring the story to life! The second track of the CD has page-turning prompts.

Reviews

Brilliantly expressive drawings.

Dinah Hall, Sunday Telegraph

Wonderfully cheeky.

The Week

A glorious riot of a book.

Carousel

Quirky and great fun . . . Jeanne Willis' talent with words comes up trumps and will bring a smile to every face

My Child

Delightfully rude

Irish Sunday Independent

The bright, bold, colourful, clear pictures are full of life and sheer, unadulterated fun . . . original, funny, delightful and in line to become such a demanded favourite that rhymes will be recalled to be repeated in chorus along with any read-aloud.

School Librarian

Written in easy-to-read rhyme and written with some hilarious pictures of animals using the facilities in some very imaginative ways.

Child Care

Funny story and bold drawings.

Lorna Bradbury, Telegraph
