“Like all boys, Martin had a zizi, and this zizi didn’t cause him any problems. Of course, from time to time, Martin worried a little. He wondered if one day his zizi would look like his dad’s zizi. But that’s normal, all boys wonder about that. So, everything was going quite well.”
That is, everything was going well until one day in the locker room the big bully Adrian started making fun of Martin’s peepee in front of everybody! Poor Martin. And to make matters worse, Martin and the bully both wanted to be the boyfriend of Anäis, the prettiest girl in school.
Push came to shove, and the boys decided to have a pissing contest. So how does our story end? Is it true that in the littlest of packages come the greatest gifts? Thierry Lenain’s jolly text is joined happily with Stéphane Poulin’s exquisite but hilarious illustrations to make this a wonderful book for parents and children to share and enjoy together.
