Wolf likes to play chase, but his friends on the farm don't like his dirty teeth. Sheep likes to play ball, but she keeps tripping over her long hair. Pig likes to play hide-and-go-seek, but when he hides in a pile of dirt, his friends don't notice he's there.
What's the answer?
A toothbrush! A haircut! A bath! With the good-natured help of their farm friends, Wolf, Sheep, and Pig find that keeping clean isn't so bad after all.
This playful picture book for preschoolers puts some fun into cleaning up. Charming animal characters, three easy stories, and striking artwork make bathtime fun!

Cristina Garelli grew up in Italy and has worked as an architect in both Italy and the United States.
Francesca Chessa's work has been exhibited in Europe and Japan and received special mention at the Bologna Children's Book Fair.
Debut artist Chessa's jaunty artwork buoy this trio of stories that tout the importance of good hygiene ("Brush Your Teeth, Wolf!"; "Cut Your Hair, Sheep!"; "Take a Bath, Pig!"). In the first tale, Dog is no longer afraid of Wolf ("You have such dirty teeth") and shows him the ins and outs of using a toothbrush, with dazzling results. Sheep, meanwhile, is having a bad hair dayDshe trips over her shaggy coat, can't see to play ball and gets caught in a gateDuntil Cat persuades her to get a trim. First-time author Garelli offers practical tips ("You have to brush your teeth up and down every day," instruct Wolf's animal friends) for the anthropomorphized characters that border on the mundane and sometimes seem prompted by an invisible parent. But Chessa's textured brushwork and sophisticated paletteDincluding olive green, aqua and shades of ocherDprovide a fitting stage for the merry antics. Wolf stretches off of the spreads as he chases his barnyard buddies, then fiercely wrestles with great loops of toothpaste. Her animals wear childlike expressions, and youngsters will readily identify with them. Ages 3-6. (Nov.)
