THE WALKING BATHROOM, published by Nimbus Publishing (2017)
written by Shauntay Grant and illustrated by Erin Bennett Banks
My latest children’s book hit bookshelves in Fall 2017, just in time for Halloween. A sweet story of standing out and fitting in, The Walking Bathroom is written by award-winning author and spoken-word poet Shauntay Grant. In the story, our protagonist Amayah doesn’t have a costume to wear to school. She dressed as a ghost for the last three years in a row, witches are overdone, and fairies are not her style. She wants to be something different, something creative, something no one else in the world has ever been in the history of Halloween. Bound to inspire some unique costumes, this story celebrates individuality and creativity in a fun, imaginative narrative.
The Walking Bathroom is an enjoyable look at one girl’s decision to make her Halloween costume as individual as she is. Good for those who always strive to find the perfect costume, and for those that appreciate a unique sense of style. – Canadian Materials Magazine (Winnipeg, MB)
