Favorite picture book from childhood
30 Day Book Challenge – Day 21
This one sticks in mind by far as my most memorable picture book from childhood. I Want My Potty by Tony Ross is the story of a little princess who decides that nappies are, in her words, “YUUECH!” and resolves to go cold turkey and start her potty training.
Of course, she learns the hard way that needing to use the potty and actually making it to the potty in time, are two entirely different matters. As such, she spends the whole book running around her princess palace screaming I WANT MY POTTY!
The pictures of her red-faced screaming and sitting on her potty with her L plates are spectacular.
And yes, as an adult, I’m still partial to a bit of toilet humour.
