Here's a fantastic tale for kids about the classic Kiwi holiday that includes a caravan, a beach and the sometimes-smelly toilet shed out the back of the holiday section - the longdrop. The kids need to go, and the public loo is sooo far away from their caravan. So, Dad builds a ...longdrop! When the paper builds to capacity Dad thinks and thinks and solves his problem - with a match. He forgets fire and methane make for an explosive situation! Based on a true story (Joan's husband is 'Dad'), this fun rhyming story celebrates the hilarious situations that arise from the Kiwi 'she'll be right' approach to life. Bob Darroch's jam-packed illustrations perfectly depict New Zealand holiday time.
