Item description for Little Zizi by Thierry Lenain, Stephane Poulin & Daniel Zolinsky...
Like all boys, Martin had a peepee, and this peepee didn't cause him any problems. Of course, from time to time, Martin worried a little. He wondered if one day his peepee would look like his dad's peepee. 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 Anis, 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 Stphane Poulin's exquisite but hilarious illustrations to make this a wonderful book for parents and children to share and enjoy together.

Reviews - What do customers think about Little Zizi?
Dares to address a part of growing up that virtually no other children's literature will touch Jun 15, 2008
Little Zizi is a unique children's picturebook that dares to address a part of growing up that virtually no other children's literature will touch. "Zizi" is a euphemism for "penis" in this simple and charming tale about an ordinary boy, named Martin. Martin wonders whether one day his little zizi will become the size of his dad's zizi; it's normal for young boys to wonder that. But then a locker room bully named Adrian makes fun of Martin's little zizi in front of all the other boys. To make matters worse, both Martin and Adrian are sweet on Anais, the prettiest girl in school. Adrian challenges Martin to the contest - whoever can pee the farthest wins! When Martin can't perform in the contest despite his practice, Adrian is victorious; yet the next day, Anais repudiates Adrian's affections. She prefers the kindly Martin, "Because love isn't a question of a zizi - large or small." Enthusiastically recommended, especially for mothers and fathers to share with their sons when teaching them about the facts of life.
