Meatball the puppy is scared to poo. He is afraid that his poos will hurt so he tries to make them "disappear" by holding them inside his body. Unfortunately those poos keep sneaking back!
Meatball learns that the only way to REALLY make his poos disappear is to push them out!?
This is the story families need to start the conversation about the silent, confusing issues of constipation, stool withholding and encopresis.
What we say...
"A book like ‘My Puppy is a Poo Magician’ is a gentle way to help your child know that this is a common problem that they can overcome whilst they enjoy the story. In Meatball, Melissa has created a lovely character for kids to relate to.
The consequences of trying to make a poo disappear can be hard to explain to a young child; this beautifully written book with charming characterisation and illustration does this job brilliantly. We love this book and were delighted to be asked to contribute a Foreword to Melissa's book".
