Additional Notes

From The Publisher*A hilarious and clever bath-time picture book by humorist, novelist, and TV writer Simon Rich, with illustrations by Tom Toro (How to Potty Train Your Porcupine).
 
And so begins a hilarious dip into the choppy waters of a nightly ritual that parents and children alike often dread. Filled with soapsuds, rubber duckies, and existential angst, Simon Rich's debut picture book is a splashy tale of cleanliness-and survival. This irreverent read-aloud treat about facing fear and embracing adventure might just change the way you see bath time (and your bathroom) forever.
Review Quote*"A visual (and comedic) feast for budding smart-alecks."-Patton Oswalt
Review Quote* This delightful picture book turns the widespread phenomenon of toddler bathtime fears on its head...The book's skillfully crafted storyline will appeal to children as well as adults working to avoid meltdowns when little ones have a wash. ... A refreshing, amusing approach to overcoming ablutophobia in small children. -Kirkus
