Jeram’s characteristically delicate ink-and-watercolor artwork adds gentle humor throughout…Leaving the mechanics of using the potty to concerned adults, Lloyd-Jones’s singsong rhymes instead establish an “everyone’s doing it” aura of excitement as a means of encouragement.
Sally Lloyd-Jones’s celebratory book follows a group of silly creatures, including an elephant in a tutu, a monster, and an adorable bunny, as they look forward to a fun bathroom session. Illustrations by Anita Jeram—who did the artwork for Guess How Much I Love You—give the book a timeless feel.
Young children…will most likely giggle and relate to the general silliness that ensues. Jeram brings her soft ink and watercolor illustrations to life here. Bunny is awash in softly hued grays and pinks, while a charming elephant in a tutu and ballet toe shoes delicately parades through toward the final pages of a multitude of animals perching on their potties in the outdoors.
