I Need a Wee! by Sue Hendra & Paul Linnet (review copy) - Alan the bear has a problem. He needs a wee! But there are so many things he would rather do first. Will he make it to the loo on time? And when he gets there, will there be a queue?! Uh-oh... From Goodreads.
If your children like brightly coloured, funny stories, I Need a Wee! by Sue Hendra & Paul Linnet is for them.
The toys are all visiting a fairground, enjoying all the rides and various amusements. Alan the bear needs a wee, but he's having too much fun to go. Fortunately, his friends Giraffe and Robot make him head towards the toilet, but there are so many distractions along he way. Before he knows it, Alan is desperate. Is he going to get there?
I Need a Wee! isn't a book I would pick up for a child off my own back. The bright neon colours aren't really my thing. They make the book seem tacky to me, and it doesn't look like a picture book with much substance, to me. Having read it, there's not a huge deal of substance, but it's a fun, amusing read children will get a kick out of. What child doesn't like toilet humour? It's always going to be a hit. And with it's neon colours, children are going to be drawn to it. I personally prefer more in picture books, but children don't need every book they read to teach them something. Sometimes pure, simple fun is a good thing.
Thank you to Simon & Schuster Children's Books for the review copy.
