Casey's bathtub becomes another world!
Cynthia DeFelice's Casey in the Bath first appeared in Cricket magazine and is one of her most popular stories -- asked for again and again by children who know her as a professional storyteller. Now, for the first time, the story appears in picture book format with lively illustrations by Chris L. Demarest. Casey, a reluctant bather, finds himself with no soap except a bottle of green bath gel that his mother bought that morning from an odd salesman. Squirting out the gel, Casey discovers that it produces green bubbles that turn into green playmates. Casey has a blast with them! By the time he runs out of the gel, the salesman returns with purple toothpaste and the guarantee of even more fun in this lark about the joys of keeping clean -- and of using the imagination.
