Revised and Newly Illustrated

Best Books for Kids & Teens, Canadian Children’s Book Centre

With its lively cast of critters and gentle humor, Toilet Tales has been helping youngsters feel at ease in the bathroom for more than 20 years. Now this giggle-inducing favorite returns with vibrant new watercolor illustrations and few new creatures, too.

Page by page, young readers will delight at the antics of animals on the commode. Of course, a giraffe could never even fit through the bathroom door. A seal would slip right off the seat. And a sitting elephant would simply crush the potty to pieces. After many such comical bestial blunders, the story concludes that animals can never use toilets because toilets are meant for “big kids like you.”

Featuring more than a dozen animals—including kangaroos, an octopus, and even an orca whale–and written with child-friendly wit, Toilet Tales is guaranteed fun for any toilet-ready toddler.
