The Tub People by Pam Conrad, Richard Egielski

During an unseen child's bath time, the seven members of a wooden toy family ride on the floating soap and compete in swimming races. But after the near loss of the Tub Child down the drain, they are all reunited on a warm bed, where they mountain climb on the ridges formed by soft quilts.

we first saw this book at our local library, my son loved it so much he put it under his mattress to read every night before going to bed. I though we took it back but when we go the notice of it being over due he fessed up that he didn't want to give it back. At the time i couldn't find it, now that he is 26 I'm going to buy it for him to give to his own children.

This is my daughter's absolute favorite book. I don't even know how many times we've read it together. It is great and definitely a classic.

One of my favorite children's stories. Pam Conrad has a wonderful imagination and tells a very charming tale from an unusual point of view. Egielski accompanies with his trademark beautiful artwork. Hard to find out-of-print book, but easily worth the search.
