Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A trip to the zoo provides Morgan (Oops, Sorry!) with the setting for a chirpy exegesis aimed at the potty-ready crowd. A round-faced boy with three wisps of hair visits eight habitats, taking note of each species' distinctive method of "doo-doo." As balls of dung exit the back of a pachyderm, the boy holds his nose and sees that "Elephants doo-doo bigger than you. Plop!" On the next spread, the boy and a giraffe watch with approving smiles as the latter "doo-doo[s] from way up high," and a toucan unfortunately leaves its droppings on the toddler's head. The boy, however, knows he's special because he uses a toilet-and the final spread finds him in the bathroom while all the zoo dwellers look on (the elephant helpfully offers a roll of toilet tissue in its trunk). Morgan's crayoned outlines and simply rendered hero give the pictures a childlike feel, while his animals exhibit a more expressive sense of shape, texture and movement-the tiger is particularly striking. The book does not have the hip artiness or tantalizing details of the genre's progenitor, Everyone Poops, but it's genial enough to elicit giggles. Standard toileting tips-for parents and kids-can be found in the preface and afterword. Ages 2-4. (June) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
