The Lovereading4Kids comment

An older brother looks affectionately at his baby brother despite the fact that he is very far removed from the super-hero he is hoping for! Instead, this little one has only one skill – he can fill a nappy!


Mr Super Poopy Pants by Rebecca Elliott

Ever since Mummy told Toby he would be getting a new baby brother, he had been looking forward to all the adventures they would have together. But new baby Benjy can’t run around, he can’t talk, he can’t invent gadgets and he can’t even fight crime…

Mr Super Poopy Pants is a warm-hearted and mischievous story about a toddler getting to know his new baby brother. Join Toby as he learns to love his little brother’s ‘pooperpowers’ through a series of witty and refreshingly frank pictures from award winning illustrator Rebecca Elliot. The book introduces the idea of a new baby in the family to older siblings in a fun and approachable way.

Mr Super Poopy Pants is the first in a new series entitled ‘Tough Times’ by Rebecca Elliott, which introduces difficult subjects to young children.


A fantastic new picture book from award-winning author illustrator Rebecca Elliot, which introduces the idea of a new baby in the family to older siblings in a frank but funny way. -- Goodreads

a witty, hilarious, beautifully illustrated super hero story... a classic in the making --

This absolute treasure of a book... should be given out as a matter of course to all children about to gain a sibling. -- Loll Kirby Story Seekers

About the Author

Rebecca Elliott

Always the eternal daydreamer and doodler Rebecca Elliott's school project from the age of six has in it the line “When I grow up I want to be a writer and an artist”. After a brief trip into a more serious life involving gaining a degree in Philosophy followed by an insanely dull office job Rebecca returned to her childhood career plans.

Since 2002 she has written and illustrated dozens of children’s picture books including, Cub’s First Winter, Naked Trevor , The Last Tiger, Milo’s Pet Egg and Zoo Girl which was nominated for the 2012 Kate Greenaway Medal. She has also written about her own children, one of whom has severe special needs, in her books Just Because and Sometimes which have been met with accolades from former children’s laureates Jacqueline Wilson and Michael Rosen, five star reviews and much media coverage from, amongst others, The Independent and Radio 2.

Rebecca also teaches adult courses on writing and illustrating children’s books, regularly visits schools and runs workshops for children at events including the Edinburgh Literary Festival.

She lives in Suffolk with her ‘inspirations’ - her husband Matthew, a history teacher, and three children, Clementine, Toby and Benjamin and continues to spend her days doodling and daydreaming.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
