[TOON Books, an imprint of Astra Books for Young Readers]
Legendary New Yorker cover artist Frank Viva brings his joie de vivre to a stylishly charming picture book relatable to readers young AND old: how to hold it all the way to the bathroom! Little Owen should have listened to his mom before they left the house but instead he’s now squirming: he’s GOTTA GO. Luckily for him, Grandpa is right there to show him all the silly dances and tricks he needs to help flush the urge away!
The mischievous Owen first made his appearance almost a decade ago in a celebrated NYC transportation ad, and this year we’re so proud to see him return for TOON’s first-ever jacketed picture book comic and for a holiday catalog cover that will make new fans of both kids and adults.
