Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cara Mulcahy
The first thing that catches the reader's attention, aside from the title of the book, is the illustrations. Illustrations fill entire pages while the text is inserted into the illustrations. Sometimes one scene fills two pages, while at other times the illustrations are split in unexpected ways to capture the hilarity of the situation. The colors used are bright and vibrant, which adds to the frivolous and energetic tone of the story. As the title of the book suggests, this book is about two young boys trying to figure out who is taking so long in the bathroom. Their imaginations run wild as they try to answer this question. Their thoughts, accompanied by the illustrations, show amusing possibilities such as: a monkey washing his feet, a mole that fell into the toilet bowl, "a school of skunks washing their tails," and a leopard changing his spots. A great book for classroom read-alouds. The predictable nature of the story allows for young readers to guess at what will happen next. At home or in school, this is a great story for young children.
School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1
Two children, waiting in a long line to use a public toilet, speculate on what could be causing the delay. "Who's in the bathroom?/We'd all like to know./And why are they being so terribly slow?/We're all getting desperate. It's our turn to go!" Speculation ranges from an elephant "having a poo" to a whale who is "doing the world's biggest pee." "Is it a stoat who is making a stink?" In the end, the children cut to the front of the line, knock on the door, and learn the answer: it is an octopus conscientiously washing all eight "hands." Bright, exuberant cartoons enliven the story and make it a good choice for those with a strong stomach for toilet humor. A frozen stream of urine shoots from a "waddling penguin too frozen to piddle" and a rat leans over the toilet seat "ready to chuck." Adults will quickly tire of this one-joke book, but children may be too captivated by the images of a farting rhinoceros and a "widdling" wombat to question some of the suggestions or wonder why only animals are shown in the bathroom but do not wait on the line with the humans.

    Great Book

    This book is so funny. My son is 4 and this is his favorite book. I also enjoy reading it. I love books that rhyme.
