A Bath? Elliot had been damp before. He'd even had his paws in the pond. But he'd never had a bath.

"That sounds like fun!"
he said with a grin.

  Elliot's Bath
Written & Illustrated by Andrea Beck

Elliot Moose and his best friend, Socks, can't wait to perform in tonight's talent show. But as they put the finishing touches to the stage, disaster strikes! Socks and her can of paint tumble from the ladder and - SPLAT - she and Elliot are splotched in bright blue from head to foot!

Their friends fill the bathroom sink, and Elliot and Socks leap into the water. They splish and splosh and have lots of bubbly fun... but soon they're so full of water that they can't move! And no attempt to dry the soggy pair works. Will Elliot and Socks get dry in time to make a splash at the talent show?

Elliot's bath is full of good clean fun that will have children smiling - and looking forward to their next bath.
