Annotation

It's bath time! All the little piggies have had lots of fun playing, and now they're dirty, muddy, and covered in paint. But their mamas aren't worried—they have just the machine to turn this Herculean task into an adventure. Anyone who has ever been captivated by the swaying brushes and spinning jets of soap and water at the car wash will be in hog heaven as Arthur Geisert's intricate etchings reveal the inner workings of an enormous contraption that can lather and scrub a whole farm full of dirty little piglets in no time at all—and that's not just a bunch of hogwash!

Horn Book March/April 2008 Horn Book“Pore over the cleverly devised ink-hatched and watercolor-tinted gadgetry, then...round up some kitchen gear for tear-free tubtime.” Bulletin, March 2008 Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books“The pigs appear delighted with the whole process. Readers will be, too.” PW Starred 2/18/08Publishers Weekly, Starred"There are no words in [this] marvelous picture book...but words and giggles aplenty will fly from youngsters."
