I've been having a few problems with my son in the toilet-training department, so I hoped this book might be helpful in encouraging him to go to the bathroom when necessary. We are big fans of Sue Hendra's 'Supertato', and so jumped at the chance to read this when we found out about it. My son did enjoy the book. He loves the pictures, and likes every character. If he were to award the stars for this review, he tells me it'd be a five-starrer. However, it wasn't exactly what I was after. The story isn't very dynamic: the main character, Alan, needs a wee and keeps procrastinating. Whilst his friends do keep reminding him he needs a wee, they don't stop him from eating the cake, or getting a balloon, etc and encourage him to relieve himself in inappropriate places. This isn't really the message I am wanting to instil in my delightful pant-wetter. All-in-all, I'm a bit disappointed. But, if you are reading this without a toilet-training agenda, it's a cute little book.
