A sweet picture book that includes the youngest children's first impression and fear of the toilet.

A little girl was afraid of going to the toilet alone, because the big and deep toilet seemed to be a hole, and there could be shark, octopus and hippo coming out of it. She asked for her mother’s company and told her about all the horrible imagination. But her mother developed her story in order to encourage her to go on her own.
Finally, our little warrior made her way to the toilet on her own and she found that everything was so easy and that the toilet wasn't scary at all. She embraced her soft, wise mum and she knows that this is all because she has a great mom.
