Piglet One, Piglet Two, and Piglet Three just can't seem to keep clean. "Oh, you mucky piglets," Mama Pig says. "Tonight, you will have a bath."
But the three little piglets hate baths!
So Mama Pig swishes and swashes and adds lots of bubbles, then she plop-plop-plops three rubber ducks into the tub to make the best bathtime ever.
Filled with fun bathtime sounds, Squeaky Clean has adorable illustrations that will make kids wriggle and giggle and piggle with glee. And, like the piglets in the story, kids hate taking baths so parents will love the "bathtime is fun!" message.

Simon Puttock has written several books for children, including Coral Goes Swimming and "Here I Am!" said Smedley. A buyer for Waterstone's Bookstores, Mr. Puttock is lively and active in the book trade. He lives in Newcastle upon Tyne, England.From School Library Journal:
reschool-Kindergarten--Winsome grins of piglets remind readers of the joys (and challenges) of bathtime as Mama Pig attempts to get her little ones clean. "`And NOW-splishy splashy sploshy'-And she splooshed and she swooshed and galooshed them all over." McQuillan's cartoon illustrations capture a range of emotions: Mama's frustration, the piglets' initial stubborn refusal to cooperate, their outright exuberance in a bubble-filled tub, and a mischievous escape to "get GRUBBY again." Both cover and endpapers leave no question as to the topic of this book. The initial tub illustration leads to pages of pastel blocks with the youngsters and bath toys. While the story isn't new, the spacing of repetitive or sequential text perfectly suits the intended audience. Mama's piglets, like many toddlers, exude both innocence and boundless energy. They don't slow down even after the lights go out. Pair this title with Carol Roth's Ten Dirty Pigs/Ten Clean Pigs (North-South, 1999).
