Sloppy Takes the Plunge
Everyone loves a good hug and a good bath!
Sloppy the tree dragon doesn’t want to take a bath.
“Being mucky is what a tree dragon is all about.” Could it be that getting clean is nearly as fun as getting dirty?
The illustrations are very appealing, with the happily cartoonish characters infused with rich, warm colors that are full of depth and dimension. Sloppy's caring and helpful nature is contagious, and the innocence of this picture book for young children is refreshing.

Just the ticket for allaying incipient ablutophobia.
This is such a wonderful book to read to young children to help them understand that it is OK to be afraid to try something new but being brave can also lead to new and exciting experiences.
Youth Services Book Review
In a clever visual spread, the pond is shown in cutaway side view, including a plug on a chain, prompting children to make a direct connection to their own bathtubs.
