The Poopophant

Who’s large and blue and always gentle

And does good things, quite accidental?

Well, who is it then? After all, every child already knows what they produce: a huge heap. But unlike many small children, the Poopophant is allowed to put his productions to good use – and he’s incredibly proud of them, too. He builds the biggest sandcastles, helps children find their way out of the woods and douses flames with the fire brigade, to name only a few of his good deeds.

No other picture-book hero has ever made his mark with such cheerful and unrestrained insouciance. An old-fashioned style adds to his charm – rhymes of simple elegance, complemented by astute and inviting pictures that are anything but icky.

The first-ever and best-ever toilet reading for all kids who are getting ready to move on from nappies.

  • loveable hero who is bound to strike a chord with the little ones

  • humorous rhymes for the transition from nappies to toilet – or for reading anywhere else as well

  • a celebration of children’s anarchic unrestrained pride in their own poo
