“No! You can’t wee in there!” whispered Robot. “It’s a teapot – not a wee-pot!”
Welcome to the first of my weekly “What’s on the shelf?” posts. When I asked my daughter which book I should pick, I knew what her answer would be. She loves anything by Sue Hendra (we all do!) and loves adding to her collection. However, this is her absolute favourite book of all time!
The story is about a gorgeous knitted bear who goes by the name of Alan. He is having sooooo much fun playing with his friends until…. you’ve guessed it – he needs a wee! His adventures continue whilst he gets more and more desperate! Hilarity ensues as obstacles and distractions present themselves and finding a suitable place for having a wee becomes more and more unlikely until finally… well, I’ll leave it up to you to find out!
The bright and vivid illustrations help the story along, the expressions on the characters’ faces are adorable and comical at the same time! I have definitely developed a soft spot for Alan!
This book is laugh out loud funny. My daughter has read this time and time again and never fails to giggle at Alan and his antics. A fabulous, fabulous story that will appeal to children and adults alike of all ages. ‘Perfect for anyone who’s ever been desperate….’
