Justine Avery is an award-winning author who loves writing stories for all sorts of readers. She was born in America but grew up-and is still growing up-all over the world as a natural explorer with a curiosity for all things. She's jumped out of airplanes, off of very high bridges, and into shark-infested waters-to name a few adventures. And books are her favorite adventures of all. Olga Zhuravlova lives in a small European country by the sea-Latvia. Every day she wakes up and draws funny (or not so) pictures for children's books to inspire kids to read those stories and explore the world. She loves cats and walking along the beach.
"A very good book to help parents, especially first-time parents, to toilet train their children ... Plenty to talk about ... Especially well-conceived ... The artwork is superb." --LoveReading4Kids"A delightfully charming book ... Cool, imaginative visuals to smile at while learning ... Adults will find it just as entertaining as children ... There are other books out there on this particular subject, without a doubt this is the best one I've read yet ... Amusing and colorful, imaginative and funny ... The topic from a whole other perspective--as an adventure." --Readers' Favorite"Poo shame is not something kids are born with, it's something they learn. This picture book unabashedly takes the shame away ... Rhyming text is confident, catchy and to the point ... A fun addition to the home library ... Be prepared to giggle along as young readers go poop-spotting through the pages." --The Children's Book Review"Nobody is left out of the natural process ... Justine Avery swept those anxieties away and created a jaunty page-turner ... We take unexpected moments too seriously... But if we try to find the laughter somewhere in it all, it makes us lighter people (pun intended)." --Readers' Favorite"Brightly illustrated, fun, fun, FUN book ... I would recommend any parent with a 2 - 3 yr old who is trying to get the child on the loo, to try this book ... Let's face it, poop is funny!" --The Wishing Shelf Review"This book is pretty amazing ... What a wonderful way to get kids to be chill with the idea of having to use the bathroom! It's only natural, after all." --Readers' Favorite"Poop is nothing to be ashamed of, and actually is something to celebrate ... Clear message and involving story is presented in a lively format." --Midwest Book Review
