Elliot Moose and his best friend, Socks, are excited about performing in tonight's talent show. But as they put the finishing touches to the stage, Socks and her can of paint tumble from a ladder and -- SPLAT! -- she and Elliot are splotched in bright blue from head to foot! Their friends fill the bathroom sink and Elliot and Socks leap into the warm, soapy water. They splish and splosh and have lots of bubbly fun ... but soon they're so waterlogged that they can't move! And no attempt to dry the soggy pair works. Will Elliot and Socks get dry in time to make a splash at the talent show? Elliot's Bath is good, clean fun that will leave children smiling.

is a writer and illustrator. She lives in Unionville, Ontario.From Booklist:
Ages 3-6. Elliot, the plush toy moose, and his best companion, rag monkey Socks, excitedly anticipate the evening's talent show as they paint the stage for their performance. But when Socks leans over too far on the ladder, she loses her balance, falls, and splatters herself and Elliot with blue paint. A scrub in the bathroom sink is the answer, but the two cloth toys absorb so much water they can't haul themselves out of the basin. Their resourceful toy friends come to the rescue, then roll Elliot and Socks in towels and try to blow them dry with the propeller of a toy airplane. But Elliot and Socks are still so soggy that they may miss the evening's show. As in previous Elliot-Socks adventures, ingenuity and self-reliance prevail: the performers are hoisted onto the clothesline to dry in the sun. Beck's joyful, expressive illustrations, inventively detailed in pencil crayon, will engage children in all the emotion and fun. Ellen Mandel
