Po’s bathroom is a place where she can be herself, enjoy quiet time, and do anything she dreams of: put on shows, dance and sing, and create whatever she imagines. But her mom, dad, and brother always barge in and interrupt her alone time. She wishes for a sanctuary all her own. Then one night, Lady Violet, a beautiful toilet guardian, appears with a magical gift. Things for Po will never be the same. But maybe she isn’t the only one who needs her very own private bathroom.
Author Yan Du and illustrator Erin Vanessa bring to life a sweet story about the importance of self-care and having a place of one’s own.
