"Piddles the Penguin - A funny wee ebook for kids" is absolutely hilarious - it is clever and extremely funny! Otto Fishblanket - whomever he/she may be - understands young children's fascination with bathroom functions and has used that to create an e-book that both children and many adults will find very amusing. Written as a rhyme, the ook is easy to read aloud as the poetry is not forced or awkward.

The human character, who made the mistake of allowing the penguin into his home, uses ingenuity and imagination to "make lemonade out of lemons" - so to speak. A surprise ending, which youngsters (particularly boys) will find even more funny than the penguin's, may seem inappropriate to some but it is really quite amusing. Clever, yet simple illustrations are an added bonus.

Otto Fishblanket's "Piddles the Penguin ..." is a book that delighted my 4 1/2 year old grandson - and admittedly, this Grandma. Others who may prefer that youngsters not laugh at "bathroom humor" will be less amused by Piddles. You should look at the sample and then decide whether this is a book that you want to add to your e-library. For me, it was five-star funny and a clever twist on solving the problem.

Not quite sure what else to say. The book rhymes and the artwork is decent. When I downloaded it, I though the word wee was in reference to small, not urine. There is no moral or lesson here. Just a childish book. I would only recommend this to children that are well past being potty trained. Those that are not would get mixed messages. At best, it's a rhyming book about potty humor.... in every sense of the word.

Piddles the Penguin - A funny wee ebook for kids
Colorful rhyming children's story about a penguin. He shows up at the door and needs to go to the bathroom. Problem is he doesn't make it there right away and ends up peeing on the stairs, on the floor, on a chair, etc.
The man puts him in the car to bring him to the zoo. They won't take him so back home and the penguin uses the garden to go pee. There is pee all over the house again and the man looks outside at the flowers, they weren't there the other day.
He has an idea of how to use the pee to become rich...
Other works by the author are highlighted at the end.

Best read with your Kindle device in portrait mode to ensure the appropriate picture and text appear on the one screen, although it does still let you read it the other way. This is a fun story with the added bonus of fun cartoon like colourful illustrations by Gerald Hawksley who also writes his own books. This is the second book the two authors have teamed up for, the other Stinky Santa is also a great read.

In Piddles the Penguin a man answers a knock on his door to find a penguin asking to be let in as it needs to pee. Of course it's a penguin so hasn't been toilet trained to human toilet habits so it relieves itself in a number of places and on things in the man's house. He decides to take the animal to the zoo but unrealistically a zoo keeper tells him they don't want a penguin that piddles so much, although where all the other animals go is never stated. The man though isn't prepared to just release the penguin onto the streets and eventually the two discover a very profitable relationship where both can live with the penguin's toilet habits.

When I read this, I just KNEW my granddaughter would love it so I downloaded it before coming for a visit. On the drive down I read it to my husband, and he agreed it would be a hit.

So last night as we were scrolling through all her choices of books we could read together I told Lexy that she could pick anything she wanted, but first I wanted to read this story to her about Piddles. Grandpa said, "Oh yeah. if that's the one from the car," (meaning the one I had read to him), "you're gonna love it!"

So as I read the story she was reading along with me and guessing what would happen next and laughing right along with me at delightful little Piddles.

And then there was a surprise at the end! What a marvelous story! We both agreed this one goes in the collection of keepers!

Okay this book had my son laughing so hard he nearly peed on himself and that was no joke. Lol. This is a very cute book. Let's face it children just this Lind of thing is funny and it catches their interest. I am happy to let my child read a book about a penguin with lack of bladder control if it is going to help his reading skills.

I liked this sweet short story and I have no qualms about it? You will not either if you like sweet animal stories! The book I felt was well-written and well-illustrated as well. I recommend this book for children but also for adults who likes. a sweet short animal story especially about penguins. I gave this book five stars for how well Otto had written it and also for the well-illustrated book. If received this book free from the author through a free book deals web site that now comes to my email inbox daily now. Thanks Otto fr making ths possible fr many people who cannot usually buy hardly any books otherwise!

This short story had me laughing until the end. I can only imagine reading it to a child and them going "ewwww!" at parts. It was really cute and fun to read and I'd imagine that kids will find it highly entertaining and ask for it to be read many times!
