Author(s): David Elliot
A comical story about a very busy bath, from one of New Zealand’s master author/illustrators. Pig is having a lovely bath. In come Sheep, Cow, Horse.... They are very noisy! What can Pig do to make them go away? Pig must think of something smart and quick. Oink!
Sasha's Review: Pig just wants to enjoy a nice, hot bath in David Elliot's new, minimally worded picture book. But Pig isn't the only one with the same idea. First Sheep, then Cow and now Donkey?! This tub is getting crowded! Will Pig ever get to enjoy the bath? Maybe, with the use of some ... unorthodox ... tactics. Elliot's expressive illustrations will have kids rolling about with laughter as Pig hatches a dastardly plan. Parents beware - bath-time might be about to become a bit more fragrant!

"The character of this pig is irresistible: his rich inner life and thoughts are written all over his face! The loud friends pay no attention but he finds a time-honoured way to get them out of the bath." - Julia Marshall, Publisher
