It's bathtime yet again for the cow, the pig and the duck, the farm friends who cannot elude their fastidious owner's loofah for long. Believing they need a pre-holiday scrub, Mrs. Wishy-Washy commands the critters to lather up in a cold tin tub in the snowy barnyard while she runs an errand. However, the duck has a better idea, and leads a slushy parade indoors to a pink bathtub—and warm, perfumey, bubble-bath heaven. It's more of same—in the best of ways—from the accomplished creative Wishy-Washy duo, who delivers consistently jaunty verse and spry and silly ink-and-watercolor scenes. Ages 2-up. (Sept.)
