9780002239035: Petula, Who Wouldn't Take a Bath

Now you may not believe this (I swear that it's true): A girl named Petula had so much to do she couldn't find time to get certain things done, like naptime and clean-up -- the things that aren't fun. Especially she couldn't find time for a bath. When her mother said "Bath time!" Petula just laughed and ran off to get even dirtier still. Her name was Petula Priscilla McDill.

Most story books are meant to be read aloud. This wild and wonderful zinger shouldn't just be read aloud: it should be play acted, complete with over-the-top facial gestures and operatic inflection on "Pe-tooooo-la!"

Petula's bath-time abstinence is becoming a problem, especially when an ancient parental threat comes true: a carrot starts growing from Petula's ear. Undaunted, she simply ties a ribbon around the offending veggie. It's only when Petula grows into an entire vegetable garden, and the neighbors's become picky, picky, picky, that our dirty damsel must again come clean.

With rollicking rhymes as clever as Dr. Seuss, made even more delicious by the equally outrageous and colorful masterpieces drawn by Jackie Snider; Petula, Who Wouldn't Take a Bath is guaranteed to plug bath-time boredom forever.
