School Library Journal - 02/01/2018 PreS—The adventures of Peep and Egg continue in this delightful installment. Peep enthusiastically tries to convince Egg to use the toilet. Reluctant Egg has a number of excuses to avoid the act ("Too slippery!" or "Too loud!") and defiantly exclaims each time that he's not using the potty. Peep cleverly introduces Egg to new scenarios that will lead to him to giving in, such as drinking lemonade and playing by a stream with their duckling pals. Wan's bright and bold illustrations add to the fun. She uses close-up frames to highlight the emotions of Peep and Egg, creating a sense of heightened drama with just a few lines for their eyes and beaks. Caregivers who are attempting to potty train little ones will be grateful for this latest addition to the genre. The book addresses some of the concerns that children might have through Egg facing his own fears. Kids will appreciate the humor even if they're past that stage. The story concludes in a satisfying manner for both Peep and Egg. VERDICT A winning addition to the series to be shared one-on-one or with a group.—Gretchen Hardin, Sterling Municipal Library, Baytown, TX - Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
