The spic-and-span heroine of Joy Cowley's hit Mrs. Wishy-Washy makes a splashy comeback in this bubbly picture book!
Mrs. Wishy-Washy's up to her animal cleaning again, but her barnyard buddies aren't happy: The cow gets soap in its eye, the pig gets scrubbed too much, and the duck has suds in its feathers. So the three decide to hightail it to the big city, where "the barns are big" and it's "as wild as a farm stampede," but when they get thrown out of a restaurant and eventually land in "the pick-up van from the animal jail," they realize that back on the farm -- and in Mrs. Wishy-Washy's tub -- is the most blissful place to be.
A whimsical and warm follow-up with Elizabeth Fuller's rosy-cheeked artwork, Mrs. Wishy-Washy's Farm will leave Cowley fans tickled pink. The author recaptures all the fun and down-home charm of the prior Mrs. Wishy-Washy book, and with the animals' urban hijinks and return to quiet life, kids will agree that having their favorite farmwoman around is squeaky-clean good.
