Puff, Owl, and Rabbit decide to give Mustard, a very muddy teddy bear, a much-needed bath, only to find themselves requiring a tub of their own.
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
PreSchool-These two titles involve the same four friends-Rabbit, Owl, Mustard the bear, and Puff the cat. Each presents sequential action revolving around bedtime and bathtime. One or two lines of text accompany each double-page spread. Rather than offering fully developed stories, the books make simple statements and observations or ask questions of readers. Toddlers will enjoy the characters' moment-to-moment experiences, although they certainly aren't memorable. The cartoonlike pictures use a bold, black line and colored inks to create the images, making them appropriate for young children. The illustrations are charming and work to augment the interactive nature of the books. However, the aggressive shading technique tends to mute the bright colors of the pages. This is especially detrimental in You Need a Bath, as Mustard continues to look dirty even after washing. Serviceable, but not necessary purchases.
