A little boy has learned to use his potty seat like his big sister. But when he sees the Manneke Pis statue in Brussels, Belgium, he is inspired to pee standing up like a big boy.

My son's stalled in his potty training process, so I've been trying to encourage him. This is the story of a young boy who suddenly realizes that he is able to stand up when he pees. I found it quite hilarious, my son wasn't interested!

Hilariously funny for an adult, humorous for kids.
I once read this to a group of adults and they thought it was hilarious. Cute guide to helping little boys learn to urinate more effectively.
