9780006646921: The Badger's Bath (Percy the Park Keeper)

The badger has had a lovely day digging, but before he can have tea with Percy, Percy insists that he has a bath. The badger mysteriously disappears, but it’s not long before Percy finds out with a splash where he’s been hiding.

Nick Butterworth is one of the most successful author/illustrators today. His humour and his beautiful illustrations have made him a household name, particularly for his well-loved Percy the Park Keeper series.

When Percy decides Badger needs a bath, Badger has other ideas. Rather than waste the lovely hot water, the soap and the bubbles, Percy decides to use the bath for himself. Suddenly Badger joins him rather unexpectedly as he falls out of the tree in which he has been hiding.

Percy's insistence on Badger having a bath, and Badger's aversion to it, is just like the interaction between parent and child. It is this familiar relationship between Percy and his animal friends which so delights the young readers of these books. Nick Butterworth's humorous text and charming, expressive illustrations perfectly complement each other to produce books that have an enduring popularity. (Ages 2 to 5)

From the Back Cover:

The Badger had been doing what badgers do best. Digging. He'd had a lovely day and, as usual when he'd had a lovely day, he was filthy dirty.

Percy the park keeper loves to help his animal friends, so when he sees how dirty the badger is, he prepares a special bath with warm soapy water. But just as it is ready, the badger is nowhere to be seen . . .
