The Lovereading4Kids comment

The title says it all! Set in a gloriously depicted fairy-tale landscape this clever picture book has lots of fun with a situation that all parents and children will understand. Prince Freddie is enjoying a day off relaxing with a comic and a jug of refreshing lemonade when he gets the call to save the castle from a dragon. He immediately leaps onto his horse, Sir Rushington but – oh dear – maybe drinking all that lemonade wasn’t such a good idea. He desperately needs to go for a pee, but everything conspires against him and he has to keep his legs crossed until they arrive at the castle when … you’ll have to read it yourself! ~ Andrea Reece

The Editor at Nosy Crow says: “Every parent has been there . . . You’ve just left the house (usually about to start a long motorway journey) when a small person says, “I need a pee!” It ALWAYS happens. Everyone can identify with Prince Freddie – AND Sir Rushington – in this pant-wettingly funny tale. Just make sure you have a pee before reading the book!”

Synopsis

The Prince and the Pee by Greg Gormley

Prince Freddie is off to save a castle from a ferocious dragon, when he realises he really, REALLY needs a pee. But what with scary ogres, damsels in distress, and massive queues for the only toilet in the forest, it doesn't look like Freddie will ever get to go ...So when the dragon blocks his path, and accidentally sets fire to the castle, things don't look too good. Luckily, Prince Freddie is able to have a pee AND put out the fire in one go! A hilarious tale of derring-do and needing the loo, from the brilliant Greg Gormley and Chris Mould.
