THE PRINCE AND THE POTTY by Wendy Cheyette Lewison

THE PRINCE AND THE POTTY

Age Range: 1 - 5

KIRKUS REVIEW

Boys had to wait 12 years, but their potty book has finally arrived, and it was well worth the wait. This time, Lewison uses the housebreaking of a puppy to draw a parallel to the Prince’s own potty-training. When the Prince turns up his nose at his potty, his parents consult the Royal Wise Man. He proposes the unorthodox solution of getting the Prince a puppy. The Prince is closely involved in teaching the puppy to use his cloth rather than leave puddles throughout the castle. When he finally goes where a puppy should, the Queen and Prince cheer him. Needless to say, the Prince makes the connection and gets cheers of his own. The illustrator change will be a seamless transition for children familiar with both books—Motoyama’s illustrations mirror Brown’s, with brightly colored depictions of castle life and wide-eyed characters. A must for every library and toddler boy. (Picture book. 1-5)
