Review: Daddy and the World's Longest Poo

A young boy searches the house for his dad, but he’s nowhere to be found.

When he finally finds him, the boy discovers Dad has been hiding in the toilet and uncovers a secret about why Dad sometimes disappears for so long. 

This is a bold and cheeky picture book for those who like bathroom humour. 

With toilet talk and sometimes revealing accompanying illustrations, kids who find toilet time amusing are likely to get the giggles, and the story has been written to get a chuckle out of Mum and Dad as well.

The illustrations are colourful and bright, delivered in a fun cartoon style. And I enjoyed the detailed expressions of the characters throughout the story as the young boy gets worried and Mum gets mad.

For ages five and up, this is a quirky story about toilet habits and their impact on family life.

  1. Thank you for a beautifully written and complimentary review and for handling the show stopping illustration in a sensitive way, without giving away the punchline explicitly, which some reviewers have done. This is a great review, not just for my book but in terms of being well crafted. Thank you.
