"It's potty time!" says Joe. Joe and his friends (including Nellie Elephant, Percy Pig, and Friendly Frog) learn that although bottoms come in all shapes and sizes, everyone must use the potty.

With whimsical illustrations and the simplest of texts, award-winning author-illustrator Guido Van Genechten gives toddlers a spirited story perfect for potty time.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* Ages 2-4. "It's potty time!" cries Joe, pictured on the right-hand page, set against a brilliant white background, with his red potty shown on the left-hand page. Flip the page, and there's a surprise: instead of Joe, children see Nellie the Elephant, her "great big bottom" planted on the potty. Each successive spread reveals another goofy surprise: Tall Thin Giraffe's "neat little bottom," Percy Pig's "round pink bottom," Ziggy Zebra's "striped bottom," and Missy Mouse's "teeny weeny bottom." Some of the creatures make their usual animal sounds as they sit, which is sure to elicit plenty of giggles--if the notion of different animals sitting on a potty chair hasn't already made children laugh. And, of course, Joe eventually has his turn: "Well done, Joe!" The minimally detailed, brightly colored pictures keep kids clearly focused on the situation, and they deliver a message without being messagy. Their bright colors--fire-engine red, canary yellow--and the thickly applied paint may remind kids of their own finger paintings. The book, which was first published last year in Belgium, will be welcomed by parents and children alike; its humor sets it apart from others on the topic. Be assured, it's very, very funny.
