“I’m bored,” said Tic.

“Me too,” said Tac.

What do two bored badgers do when they’ve done everything, including driving their mother around the bend?

Laundry, of course.

What could possibly go wrong?

In this spirited picture book, Tic and Tac, two adorable badgers, get a little carried away while helping their mom out with the laundry.

Praise for Laundry Day

"A must-buy for any library, this simple but joyful book will be a hit whether read one-on-one or shared with a group."—School Library Journal, starred review

"Bagley, who dealt with more somber themes in Boats for Papa and Before I Leave, uses her tidy, detailed rendering style to great comic effect."—Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Cleverly plotted and skillfully crafted, this humorous story manages to convey both adult and child perspectives. A good choice for one-on-one sharing; make sure to allow time to savor the illustrative details."—Booklist

"This tale of badger mischief is excellent both as a read-aloud and as a book for beginning readers."—Kirkus Reviews

"Injecting a touch of the ridiculous into the mundane, this story shows how even the most tedious of chores has the potential to turn a child’s day around."—Horn Book
