What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

This perfect story for bathtime is now available as a board book!

For any young child (or pig), there are few things more excruciating, more traumatic, more torturous than bathtime. And this little pig is putting his hoof down. No. More. BATHS. But how can he possibly accomplish this? Well, by being someone else, of course. After all, everyone knows that pirates, astronauts, and knights in shining armor–just to name a few–never, EVER take baths. Now if only he can convince his mother . . .

This humorous story is the perfect choice for kids and parents who know all too well the never-ending struggle of bathtime.
