Lionel Poops

Gecko. Aug. 2022. 36p. Board. $9.99. ISBN 9781776574636.
Baby-Toddler–A rambunctious lion pauses his trampoline jumping to find a place to poop in this laugh-inducing board book. Unfortunately, he jumps all over town, pooping on innocent bystanders, vehicles, monuments, and, eventually, the sun. Finally, he lands on the most appropriate place to relieve himself—his potty! The feline’s changing expressions and impressive jumping skills will elicit giggles from little ones and their grown-ups. The character’s neon yellow fur and the bright turquoise background will grab kids’ attention. An unnamed narrator admonishes, “No, Lionel, No!” each time the lion misses the mark. The refrain makes this a perfect read-aloud and mnemonic device for its intended audience. When Lionel finally finds the correct spot, his proud and effusive reaction is 100 percent kid.
VERDICT A hilarious choice for stressed parents and carefree tots.
