The Lovereading4Kids comment

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. Enjoy this title even more with the accompanying audio cd.

Synopsis

Who's in the Loo? (Book and Audio CD) 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! Read along with the audio CD to bring the story to life! The second track of the CD has page-turning prompts.

Reviews

She is now a full-time writer. Jeanne Willis is one of the most successful children’s picture book authors in the UK. She wrote her first book aged five - a slim volume about cats and stitchd together with a painfullly blunt needle so that it looked like a 'real' book. After that, there was no turning back. 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.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

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