What's The Run About

Publisher Summary

A boy dawdling in the bathroom to read is taken by surprise when the characters in his book come to life in this quirky picture book perfect for young readers with a silly sense of humor or beginning potty training!

A young boy takes a new book into the bathroom to read. But what a strange story! One by one, all sorts of animals—a cow, a polar bear, a lion, and more—race across the pages. But where are they running to? Then, the boy’s reading is interrupted by a loud knock on the bathroom door. The very same creatures are outside, lined up to use the toilet!

This story within a story is sure to have kids giggling with its “potty” humor and shenanigans.
