Ever wanted to know what was used before toilet paper was invented? Ever wonder what the French did before there was a sewer? Curious about the different uses of urine? Well, now you can learn all about the history of the bathroom and all the things that go on there in rhyming format. The illustrations are cute and clever and you may just learn something. So, if someone yells "gardez l'eau" duck and cover. Warning: This book may cause fits of giggles. Staff picks 2008
