I Want My Potty! (Little Princess)
About this deal
Silence of Sadness: In "I Want to Go to the Fair", the Princess is sulking about not being able to go to the fair due to her injured foot. Until she cheers up, she doesn't say much beyond "[activity the Queen suggested] is boring" and one-word sentences.
Height Angst: In "I Want to Be Tall", the Princess wants to be taller because she is having a hard time reaching things.Stereo Fibbing: When the adults don't know where the Princess is, they each tell a different lie about her location.
General (opens the door and comes to the princess, his hand over his mouth): I did not wet the bed.In "I Want My Crayons", Princess's crayons go missing and she suspects all the adults, who get offended. It's starts off well by introducing what a potty is used for and the princess enjoying using it, after initially not wanting to. Towards the end the princess demands the potty and no one can find it. Eventually they find it but bring the potty to her too late so she wets herself. Then the story ends, with the little princess very upset in a little puddle. The Little Princess hates nappies, and thinks there must be something better. At first she thinks the Royal potty is even worse - but she soon learns to love it, even if it isn't always there exactly when she needs it.
Serious Business: The Princess takes everything she dislikes (new shoes, dance class etc) very seriously. Ross won the 1986 Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis, picture books category, for Ich komm dich holen!, ( I'm coming to get you! - Andersen, 1984. He was runner-up for the 1990 Kate Greenaway Medal from the Library Association, recognising the year's best children's book by a British subject, for Dr. Xargle's book of Earth Tiggers.
In "I Want My Potty", the Princess originally thought the potty was worse than nappies, but eventually likes it. In "I Want Baked Beans", the Princess thinks that her baked beans look like rabbit droppings, then wonders if maybe they are rabbit droppings and the rabbits climbed through the window.
