"The Magic Lavatory" By Nicholas Allan (published by Hutchinson Children's Books, London 1990) Part 2

Lavatory treatment gone wrong! The bizarre, anarchic and very funny adventures of little Jeffrey's toilet! Filled with visual jokes and surreal situations this is one of Nicholas Allan's earlier books (British author and illustrator from Brighton). No real moral in this story, other than the avocado coloured toilets (a nightmare fashion fixture from the sixties and seventies) are really bad...
Nicholas Allan has come up with a few more strange titles over the years ("The Queen's Knickers", "Cinderella's Bum", The Giant's Loo Roll"(!) and many others). Many became best-sellers and some received literary awards. Here's the link to the author's site for a biography and more information:
