The Flying Bath
By (author) Julia Donaldson; Illustrated by David Roberts
When everyone has left the house in the morning, the bath toys spring into action and head off on exciting adventures in their magical flying bath! From giving a muddy piglet a shower to putting out a fire for a frightened baboon, they have water at the ready for any emergency – but they’re always home for the children’s bathtime at the end of the day. The simple rhyming speech-bubble text is great to read aloud, and perfect for developing reading confidence. Richly detailed, sumptuous artwork completes this irresistible book for young readers. A playful and adventurous story from the creators of TYRANNOSAURUS DRIP, THE TROLL and JACK AND THE FLUMFLUM TREE.
