The young prince is lacking motivation to use his royal potty, so his parents, the King and Queen, consult the Royal Wise Man. He advises that they get the prince a puppy. As the prince patiently works with the queen to paper train the puppy, he finds his own resolve. This is a cute companion book to the very popular The Princess and the Potty by the same author. Although this is not a new publication, it is new to the library and a great addition to our "Hot Topics: Potty Training" section.
