5.0 out of 5 stars Good (and really very) clean fun! 30 April 2007
This is a cracking book which starts with a picture of a long queue outside the loo block at a zoo. Two children waiting outside spend their time speculating what animal might be inside and what might be causing the delay. The story flows well with good rhythm and rhyme "Is it a tiger who needed a tiddle, a wandering wombat who wanted a widdle, a waddling penguin too frozen to piddle?"
"Is it a crocodile clipping his nails? Or is it a coachload of elderly snails?"
Admittedly the subject matter is a tiny bit risky for an elderly relative with a strong sense of decency and a sensitive constitution from an era gone by. Your children however will love that. And the whole book's really rather tastefully done and very definitely fun. The illustrations are absolutely smashing as you'd expect from Adrian Reynolds, a master of bright and appealing picture books. My three roar with laughter at pictures of a hippo's fat bottom with a toilet seat stuck on his bottom, and poor little velvety mole who reached for the paper and fell down the hole (so perhaps one to avoid when toilet training).
A firm favourite in our house.
And if you like this, try also Someone Bigger by Emmett and Reynolds which has a similar feel and pace and is another cracking title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 11 April 2008
I bought this book by mistake for my 10 month old but i'm glad i did. It is very well written and the illustration is great. I always read to my baby before i put him to bed and although he is too young to understand, he really loves this book. It seems to grab his attention much more than any other book i read to him.

5.0 out of 5 stars I just love it!! 8 Nov 2010
This book is a must for anybody with a sense of humour. My 3 year old son absolutely loves it and I have to admit it makes me chuckle everytime I read it, which is quite alot. We borrowed it from our local library initially but after just a couple of days I bought it, knowing it would be a firm family favourite. I did make the mistake though of buying the hardback book thinking it would be more durable for a 3 year old, but when it came I realised it is a shortened version of the original and not quite as good.
I have since gone on to buy several copies for birthday presents and replaced the hardback copy with the paperback version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Book Ever 6 Dec 2010
By Anon.
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
We bought the board book version of this as our little one (7months) loves to grab at pages, we're so glad we did as we never tire of reading this to him.
It's funny, the pictures are excellent and the rhymes easy to remember.
We enjoy reading it to him and I'm sure that's passed on to his enjoyment.
If we could give it 6 stars we would.
