The naughty Colin McNaughton takes on the trials of potty training in this funny, familiar tale to which toddlers—and their parents—will easily relate.

Littlesaurus laughed and laughed and sang very loudly,
"Potty poo-poo wee-wee!"
And the Daddysaurus said,
"Shush. It's rude to say it so loud."

Not only does Littlesaurus refuse to use the potty — well, for purposes other than building sandcastles or wearing as a hat — but he thinks it's hilarious to shout out "Potty poo-poo wee-wee!" and embarrass everyone within earshot, from Mommysaurus to Auntiesaurus to Teachersaurus to even his friend Whippersnappersaurus. What will help Littlesaurus change his rude ways? Could it be that a bit of reverse psychology is in order?
