Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
It's bathtime yet again for the cow, the pig and the duck, the farm friends who cannot elude their fastidious owner's loofah for long. Believing they need a pre-holiday scrub, Mrs. Wishy-Washy commands the critters to lather up in a cold tin tub in the snowy barnyard while she runs an errand. However, the duck has a better idea, and leads a slushy parade indoors to a pink bathtub-and warm, perfumey, bubble-bath heaven. It's more of same-in the best of ways-from the accomplished creative Wishy-Washy duo, who delivers consistently jaunty verse and spry and silly ink-and-watercolor scenes. Ages 2-up. (Sept.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
In this latest addition to the series, Mrs. Wishy-Washy's favorite animals (a cow, a pig and a duck) are left alone with instructions to take a bath outdoors in a tub of icy water. Instead, they creep into the farmhouse and take a relaxing bubble bath with "rose pink soap" in the fancy pink bathroom. Due to the warm spirit of the holiday season, Mrs. Wishy-Washy forgives the worried but clean animals for invading her house and rewards them with their own bath-themed Christmas gifts. Cowley is an old pro at this appealing format: pitch-perfect, rhyming text with a catchy rhythm, rich vocabulary such as "splashes and sploshes" and amusing antics causing exaggerated reactions. Fuller's charming watercolor illustrations are a major component of Mrs. Wishy-Washy's appeal, and her sweetly funny animals and delightful added touches (pink monogrammed towels in the bathroom, for example) add another layer of whimsical humor. Though the series was developed for new readers, this offering also will work well as a read-aloud for younger children. (Picture book. 3-7)
