Time for a Bath is the very young picture book companion to Time to Eat and Time to Sleep by Caldecott-Honor winning duo Steve Jenkins and Robin Page.

He terrorizes the birds, interrupts Fookwires painting, and ties the squirrels tails together. Fookwire is upset, but not nearly as upset as the squirrels, who devise an ingenious plan to stop Muffins cold. In this hilarious follow-up to Those Darn Squirrels!, the tongue-in-cheek text is perfectly complemented by the quirky, inventive illustrations.
