Mr. Wishy Washy

Joy Cowley. Philomel Books, $5.99 (18pp) ISBN 978-0-399-24200-7

Two tales that build on Joy Cowley's Mrs. Wishy-Washy character are now in board book editions. Mr. Wishy-Washy, illus. by Elizabeth Fuller, washes plates and bowls, pots and pans, ""dishy-washy, dishy-washy."" But when he accidentally washes the cat, watch out! In Mrs. Wishy-Washy Makes a Splash! it's bath time for the animals. They all run and hide-and it's Mrs. Wishy-Washy who ends up in the tub.
