Overview

Bye-bye bathtime blues!

Most storybooks are meant to be read aloud. This wild and wonderful zinger shouldn't just be read aloud:it should be play-acted, complete with over-the-top facial gestures and operatic inflection on "Pe-tooooo-la!"

Petula's bath-time abstinence is becoming a problem, especially when an ancient parental threat comes true: a carrot starts growing from Petula's ear. Undaunted,she simply ties a ribbon around the offending veggie. It's only when Petula grows into an entire vegetable garden, and the neighbors become picky, picky, picky, that our dirty damsel must again come clean.

With rollicking rhymes as clever as Dr.Seuss, made even more delicious by the equally outrageous and colorful masterpieces drawn by Jackie Snider, Petula, Who Wouldn't Take a Bathis guaranteed to plug bathtime boredom forever.
