A hilarious and clever bath-time picture book by humorist, novelist, and TV writer Simon Rich, with illustrations by Tom Toro (How to Potty Train Your Porcupine).
And so begins a hilarious dip into the choppy waters of a nightly ritual that parents and children alike often dread. Filled with soapsuds, rubber duckies, and existential angst, Simon Rich’s debut picture book is a splashy tale of cleanliness—and survival. This irreverent read-aloud treat about facing fear and embracing adventure might just change the way you see bath time (and your bathroom) forever.
“A visual (and comedic) feast for budding smart-alecks.”―Patton Oswalt
“Along with offering a bit of bathroom behavior modification, this is, undeniably, storytime gold for young audiences large or small.”―Booklist
“This delightful picture book turns the widespread phenomenon of toddler bathtime fears on its head…The book’s skillfully crafted storyline will appeal to children as well as adults working to avoid meltdowns when little ones have a wash. … A refreshing, amusing approach to overcoming ablutophobia in small children.” ―Kirkus
This story is so unexpected! My first thought was this has to be about a kid who is terrified of water, but no, I was completely wrong and delightedly so. Imagine how the bathtub feels when it hates bath time! This is such a clever story about how horrifying it is for the bathtub to experience a human climbing in and filling the porcelain. The illustrations are spot on and get kids to imagine that it isn’t a walk in the park for the tub either. This is such a fun book to read out loud and will be a repeat read for sure.
Simon Rich has written for Saturday Night Live, Pixar, and The Simpsons. He is the creator and showrunner of Man Seeking Woman (FXX) and Miracle Workers (TBS), which he based on his books. His other collections include New Teeth, Hits and Misses, Spoiled Brats, and Ant Farm. He is a frequent contributor to the New Yorker.
Tom Toro is a cartoonist and writer. He is the author-illustrator of How to Potty Train Your Porcupine. Over two hundred of his cartoons have been published in the New Yorker since 2010. Tom lives in Portland, Oregon, with his wife, kid, and cat.
