A stubborn young frog named Joe does not want to take a bath. He delays his father as long as possible by asking him to fetch his favorite toys, until Father is so loaded down he trips and lands in the mud. Now Joe is not the only one who needs a bath.

“Suitable goofiness keeps this story of maneuverings sprightly and humorous, as do the ebullient cartoony drawings, which aptly demonstrate the good-natured parry and thrusts that mark the lighter moments of parent-child discourse.” —Kirkus Reviews

“The time-honored bath-procrastination ploy is portrayed, for a change, with a lovely absence of tension. Good-natured slapstick sets the tone, and Anderson’s bright rhymes follow suit, reinforced by fresh watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations dancing on bright white pages.”—School Library Journal
