“With this book, Litwin normalizes a process everyone does, but no one really talks about. It’s not a book about learning to use the toilet, but unabashedly portrays the function as an everyday, common occurrence. The illustrations are colorful, humorous, and festive as every creature looks to be quite relieved and happy that their bodily functions are in good order. . . . If a collection is in need of a title that, like Taro Gomi’s Everybody Poops, reinforces the point that all creatures poop, then this is the one to have.”School Library Journal

"Litwin (the Pete the Cat series) presents a giggle-inducing, nose-wrinkling (and informative) picture book in rhyme about poop. The singable text (link to recording on the copyright page), aimed at young children learning to independently use the toilet, identifies how and where many creatures relieve themselves. . . . [With w]himsical . . vibrantly colored, movement-filled illustrations, Litwin approaches the topic in playful, frank, and encouraging terms that nudge the child listener with every refrain. . ."-The Horn Book Magazine

"The text has a rhythmic, rhyming cadence that clearly lends itself to singing. . . [A] note on the jacket flap prompts readers to find a recording of the song at the publisher's website. Listeners will be treated to an upbeat tune, flushing sound effects, kids' voices chiming in with Litwin's, and perhaps just a few fartlike sounds for good measure. Sure to be music to the ears of potty-training families."-Kirkus Reviews
