The Lovereading4Kids comment

Special 10th Anniversary Edition Quirky and great fun. We’ve all experienced the problem of wanting the loo at the same time first thing in the morning. Well here, Jeanne Willis’ talent with words comes up trumps and will bring a smile to every face, both young and old alike.

This special 10th anniverary edition has a downloadable audio book plus tabbed pages (each is a part of the animal on each page) throughout so children can help each animal go to the loo.


Who's in the Loo? by Jeanne Willis

'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' exuberant illustrations highlight the fun!
