Author(s): Robert Munsch
This ever-popular story of a little boy in the throes of toilet training has been making children laugh since it first appeared more than 20 years ago. This new toddler-sized board book edition retains all the humour of the original story but features condensed text that will make it even more appealing to preschoolers.
Ready to please a new generation of toddlers, preschoolers, early readers, and parents alike. There's a reason over a million copies of this title have been sold in its various forms! This new board book format opens up this story to a younger audience while still keeping a storyline that beginner readers will enjoy. [Review of earlier edition: ] Preschoolers who are in the throes of toilet training, or who have just attained this milestone, will appreciate Andrew's predicament and Munsch's gentle exaggeration. [Review of earlier edition: ] Martchenko's exaggerated illustrations are a splendid complement to Munsch's direct and pleasantly repetitive narration. The author's popularity is already widely established, and this title should do well both in libraries and bookstores serving children of preschool and primary grades.
