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.

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.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
