Following up their hilarious Take Me Out of the Bathtub and Other Silly Dilly Songs, Alan Katz and David Catrow serve up another rip-roaring collection of ditties.
Beginning with its title song, "I'm Still Here in the Bathtub" (to the tune of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame"), readers are in for plenty of laugh-out-loud licks. "Six Brussels Sprouts" counts down one kid's vegetable-eating at the dinner table, until "No brussels sprouts here on my plate / Mother says time to celebrate / Then the sad truth is I got caught / All six sprouts were coughed up by Spot." Another song, "He's Got the Whole Beach in His Pants," tells of one fun-loving baby who's "got a ton of sand in his hair and ears / He's the reason that they say the coast is clear." Whether it's "The Meals at My Camp" (following the music of "The Wheels on the Bus") or "I'm in My Room and Bored" (think "The Farmer in the Dell"), every song is accompanied by Catrow's cartoonish art and will plant a smile on any reader's face.
A knee-slappin' good time, Katz and Catrow's book is one can't-miss ode to having fun! Readers will have a ball singing these re-fanagled words to their favorite tunes, and parents will enjoy seeing their kids giggling the whole time. Matt Warner
