SynopsisWho's in the Loo? by Jeanne Willis
If you thought that toilets were only used for one thing, then think again! This hilarious tale provides us with an insight into what may go on in the bathroom when we're all queuing to use it. Is it the whale's fault, or possilby a monkey washing his feet? The possibilities are endless! The rhyming text makes this book an excellent choice to read aloud, and the comical, bold illustrations add to its appeal. It's easy to see why this rollicking read has proved such a hit with our younger audiences.

About The Author
Jeanne has been writing since she was five and has published over 150 books across all genres from picture books to teen fiction. She has had other strange jobs alongside being an author, including cowboy boot seller and reptile vet's assistant and once conducted the school orchestra in concert despite not being able to read a note of music or identify the instruments. As well as cats, rabbits, hamsters, dogs, fish and rats, she has owned a garter snake called Betty, a 25 years old smooth-clawed toad called Dave, an axolotl, newts, locusts and some giant hissing stick insects. She was once thrown out of her religious studies class at school by the Reverend Brown for writing rude poems. She was the Blue Team Captain at Junior School, sprinted for the county and can still do cartwheels.
She has won numerous awards including the Red House Children’s Book Award, the Smarties Prize and the Sheffield Children’s Book Award. She lives in North London.
