Annotation: Prince Freddie is off to save a castle from a ferocious dragon when he realizes that he really, really needs to pee. But what with scary ogres, damsels in distress, and impossibly long lines for the only bathroom in the forest, it looks like Freddie will have to face the fire-breathing dragon without having relieved himself. Or will he? The two-birds-with-one-stone ending to this hilarious tale from the brilliant Greg Gormley and Chris Mould will have readers laughing so hard, they’ll run for their own restrooms.

PreS-Gr 1—Little Prince Freddie has to go. He and his trusty steed, Sir Rushington, are on a quest to save Castle Crumbly, but it's no use. Freddie has to pee. The two stop at some handy boulders that offer some privacy, but an ogre pops out. Next they spot a tower he can go behind, but a princess awaiting rescue sticks her head out. Even a tree is no help, as the Big Bad Wolf, Puss in Boots, and the Seven Dwarfs are already in line. The solution? Blasting past the dragon at Castle Crumbly, thwarting the foe, and finding relief in the process. Readers who are familiar with long car rides will enjoy yelling along with the little prince's increasingly frantic declarations that he cant wait any longer, and the appearance of the various fairy tale characters adds whimsy. Adding to the fun are the lush, detailed acrylic illustrations of the stop-and-start voyage. While the prose here isn't stellar, and the ending is a little flat, this is an attractive, entertaining option for picture book shelves. VERDICT A fun and fanciful foray into potty humor, without being totally gross. An additional purchase.—Henrietta Verma, Credo Reference, Jackson Heights, NY
