Who Wet My Pants? (Hardcover)
Kelso's December 2020 pick
If it's one thing I enjoy, it's a good mystery, but I also - and this may shock some of you - love to laugh. "Who Wet My Pants?" is the book both kids and adults need in these turbulent times. Sure, it can be a book about potty training, but it's really a witty book about embarrassment, anger, empathy, and forgiveness. Hilarious storytelling (Try not to laugh when yelling "WHO WET MY PANTS?!" to the kiddos during your next holiday get together) supported with remarkable, bright and fun illustrations; this children's book will leave everyone rolling on the floor in laughter. Pants wetting optional.— From Kelso
Reuben the bear's got donuts for everyone in his scout troop, but his friends are all staring at something else: there's a wet spot on Reuben's pants, and it's in a specific area. "WHO WET MY PANTS?" he shouts, and a blame game starts. His buddies try to reassure him there was no crime. Just an accident. It could happen to anyone! But as all the clues begin to point in Reuben's own direction as the culprit, Reuben must come to terms with the truth.
Who Wet My Pants? isn't a potty-training book. It's a witty and wise story about embarrassment and anger, empathy and acceptance, and ultimately...forgiveness.
