In this book, a series of African animals attempt to sit on a potty. It has appeared near a small village by a jungle. Beside it is a note that says “only the best bottom of all fit on this potty.” The zebra’s bottom is too big, the giraffe can’t bend his knees enough, and other animals, such as the leopard, snake, elephant, gorilla and tortoise, also fail to fit properly. In the end, a little bare bottom child sits on the potty and uses it correctly.
I’m not sure what the point of the story is other than to make a child snicker, especially when the gorilla puts the potty on his head. Perhaps it is to make the fearsome potty more approachable. If you’re looking for a book that will help to train your child, I’m not sure this will do much.
The illustrations are bright and cute with a lot of emphasis on bottoms. This might be book to take from the library rather than purchase.
