Welcome to 'Yuck Kingdom'! The streets are made of smelly jelly fellies. The trees are all winding, dinding and finding. And the hills are made of slushy gushy mush. It's the Kingdom of Yuck and the last place that Falisha Whiskers wants to be in. But Falisha needs to find her brother Jesse.
She didn't mean to flush Jesse down the toilet... not entirely at least! And now, she needs to find him and take him back home before her daddy gets back or they're both going to be in heaps of trouble! But the Kingdom of Yuck has more twists and turns than a water slide. Will Falisha find her brother in the twisting streets made of smelly jelly fellies? And will she be able to get him back in time, and all bathed and clean, before their mommy tells their daddy that Falisha flushed her little brother down the toilet?
Teacher Recommended! For ages 4-8. Parents should explain being flushed down the toilet is only pretend.

What do you do when you have an annoying younger sibling? According to Falisha Whiskers, you flush them down the toilet. When I first started reading this, I had to put it down. I personally wouldn't have purchased it for my children. The toilet wasn’t something that we played with growing up, let alone wanted to flush each other down. We experienced sibling rivalry but handled it differently. With my own children, the only time my girls played in the bathroom was in the bathtub at bath time. So I was initially offended because my mind went into a totally different area. I walked away from this book long enough to talk with other moms to see if they could enlighten me on the fascination with the toilet. It was then that I was able to come back and complete the book. Once I was able to disconnect my personal feelings and think outside the box, “Umm...Mommy I Think I Flushed My Brother Down the Toilet” was a quick read with nice illustrations. It's a story that appeals to a child's imagination. A great lesson is taught in the end. Reviewed by: Jas
