About The Book

A young bear looks for a place to poo in this hilarious and cheeky rhyming picture book that makes the perfect toilet-training primer.

When a shy bear feels the urge to go, there’s only one thing on his mind: finding a private place where he can poo in peace! But a whole host of woodland animals who have no problem about pooing wherever they please just won’t leave him alone. Where can the little bear go?

"The lively rhyme scheme keeps the tempo upbeat while the cartoonishly exaggerated illustrations will keep readers giggling. Toilet humor done well."
