Book Description

This rip-roaring, read-aloud delight follows a giant's toilet roll as it goes on a crazy journey through town, leaving havoc in its wake. What will the townsfolk do with all the enormous sheets of paper? They could build a paper plane, or make 100s of pairs of pants. . . But will there be any paper left for the giant in his time of need?


Product Description

Review

"A mischievous light touch" (Dinah Hall The Daily Telegraph)

"Combines the fun of a giant’s runaway toilet roll with the fantastic line: “Fe fi fo fum, what can I use to wipe my...?”" (The Sunday Express)

"This is a fun rollercoaster story for young children with a jaunty rhyming text. With lovely, colourful pictures and even a gentle environmental reminder about wasting paper, it’s sure to make children giggle." (Booktrust)

"A giant's toilet roll goes on a crazy journey in a very funny, typically cheeky romp with an environmental theme." (Fiona Noble The Bookseller)

"Snappy rhyming couplets accompanied by textured painterly images and a subtly imbued, humorously delivered, envionmental message." (Junior Magazine)

Book Description

From the author of Father Christmas Needs a Wee! comes this brilliantly funny story with an environmental message.

By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
OK, since I tend to go through a few children's books I've been asked by my Dad to keep an eye out for "Grandad Books." What does this mean? Put simply books with his sense of humour that he can enjoy spending time with his grandchildren with so that they can appreciate the same things that he does.

So when this title by Nicolas Allan arrived I knew that I had just the title for him to start with. The tale is fun, its has lots of bright coloured images and when added to the fact that the whole story centres around his lavatory humour, my Dad is going to love this book. Not just because his brain works on the same level as my nephews but because it will entertain him just as much as them. All in this is a gem of a title and one that will be read quite a few times.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Giant's Loo Roll 10 Mar. 2015
By S Riaz HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is by Nicholas Allan, who has written such great children’s stories as, “Father Christmas Needs a Wee,” and “The Queen’s Knickers.” Just from those titles, you can see that irreverent humour (and toilet humour) is very popular in his books – and also very popular with his young readers. This book is no exception – “The Giant’s Loo Roll,” had my little nephew giggling all the way through.

The story begins with the giant, of course, on the toilet – when he drops his toilet roll, which bumps down the hill and into the town to cause mayhem. There are giant pieces of paper everywhere – what can they be used for? Before long, the townspeople are coming up with all sorts of inventive ideas to use the enormous toilet roll – but what about the poor giant? This is a quirky, fun read, with lots of humour in both the text and the illustrations and great fun to read aloud.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyably daft 'escaping loo roll' tale 16 Jan. 2015
By K. J. Noyes TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
The giant's loo roll gets away! Just as he needs it. But lots of the townspeople make good use of the pieces that roll on by before returning it to its owner.

Pretty funny, and easy to read in rhyme. We liked the paper pants made from the loo roll the best, the giant paper airplane, and watching a small person wee into the giant's toilet.

The illustrations are an interesting fuzzy looking set, distinctive. This k we preferrred Father Christmas Needs a Wee on a smiliar theme, but this is imaginative and you can also talk about not wasting things and also giving possession back to their owner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kids Love Potty Humor 24 Aug. 2013
By L. Nash
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
While vacationing in London I visited Harrod's and purchased "The Royal Nappy." (Very appropriate as Prince George was born two days later.) I saw on the back cover that the author, Nicholas Allan, had written other books. Since Harrod's didn't have the other titles, as soon as I got back to the hotel I ordered this on Amazon UK. (It came to my home when I returned to the US.) I know how much small children like bathroom humor; my son's favorite book twenty years ago was "The Gas We Pass." I now have 3 grandnephews. The two-year-old twins are very much intrigued with all things elimination related. This book is perfect for toddlers and potty training. It's funny without being vulgar. Just like adults, little ones can enjoy entertaining reading while in the loo.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you read this lovely little book to your children, you can guarantee a laugh as you turn the first page every time!

Its very clever and the author knew exactly what made a child tick when he put his pen to paper. I'm so pleased we bought this rather than borrowed it from the library as its now an old favourite.

1.0 out of 5 stars More toilet humour
I don't have a problem with toilet humour, it's just that it seems to be all that Nicholas Allan is capable of. Not as funny as it should be and really badly illustrated.
