The Pirate who had to Pee by Tim Miller and Matt Stanton

ABC Books, 2013. ISBN: 9780733332944 .
(Ages: 2 to 5) Highly recommended. The authors of The Fart Monster have again brought humour to bodily needs in this very funny picture book.
'Out of Order' is the last thing Pirate Pete wants to see on the door of the ships only toilet! Young children will love this funny, rhyming journey across the ocean to find a working toilet. The imagery of rolling seas and waterfalls is enough to make anyone need to pee, and the look on a particular mermaid's face is quite hilarious.
With gorgeous illustrations full of humorous things to spot (the words written in the sea can even lead to a discussion about onomatopoeia), this is a perfect book for all little pirates.
