Description

It's Halloween and 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.

A sweet story of standing out and fitting in, The Walking Bathroom is the newest book from award-winning author and spoken-word poet Shauntay Grant (Up Home). With fun, vibrant artwork from Erin Bennett Banks (Change of Heart), this imaginative tale is bound to inspire some unique costumes and become a Halloween favourite!

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.
