Animals in the Outhouse by Anja Frohlich

It could be a day like any other for the animals in the forest if only the strange blue building hadn't suddenly appeared on the edge of the wood. It's an outhouse, of all things! And it's been put there because the park ranger is tired of the forest smelling nasty and his dog treading in sticky animal poop! From now on, the animals must to do their business in the outhouse. Dr. Grunter the boar, Billy the bear, Harriet the hare, Prickly the hedgehog, Fancy the fox, Antony the stag, and Olive the owl all do their very best to use this strange and unnatural device. But was the outhouse really such a good idea ...? Children will laugh at the mayhem and mishap that ensues as each animal tries to impress the others by pooping in the portable potty.
