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.

Jeanne Willis will be at The Cheltenham Book Festival in October. For more details click here.

Synopsis

Who'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.

Having been fired from her Saturday job selling cowboy boots in the Kings Road for chewing gum, and after a brief career as a reptile vet's assistant, she worked as a copywirter and had her first picture book published at the age of 21 (which she wrote whilst pretending to be busy creating adverts for cognac) and has now written over eighty titles. She has won numerous awards, including the Children's Book Award, the Silver Smarties Prize and has been shortlisted for the Whitbread Award. She has written Who’s in the Loo? which won the Red House Children’s Book Award. Her hobbies include gardening, reading (nonfiction), natural history and collecting caterpillars. Jeanne has also worked on scripts for TV, including Polly Pocket and The Slow Norris, and a pilot TV series for Dr Xargle. She lives in North London with her husband and two children.
