The hilarious and oddly matched duo from Who Wants a Hug? returns in a rollicking, splashy bath time story. When good-natured Bear tries to host a surprise birthday for his curmudgeonly friend Skunk he encounters a teeny-weenie, minor problem: no one wants to party with a stinky skunk. Skunk, to absolutely no one’s surprise, is not particularly keen on baths.

It’s a sticky situation (and a smelly one), but the solution seems obvious and simple enough: Bear will persuade Skunk that baths are actually fun! Ever the optimist, Bear’s schemes for bath time fun literally rise to new heights as they dive down slides, soar from swings, and rebound off trampolines-- or one of them does anyway.

Just as Bear is about to throw in the towel, Skunk learns with a squish, slip, boing, swoop, and SPLASH that baths (and pool parties!) can be awesome fun after all.

Jeff Mack’s picture book Who Needs a Bath? is a wonderful read aloud to share with reluctant and enthusiastic bathers alike. For other humorous bath time reads, check out The Pigeon Needs a Bath by Mo Willems, How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth by Michelle Robinson, and Tea Party Rules by Ame Dyckman.
