Summary, etc.: Sloppy the tree dragon doesn't want to take a bath. But when Dewdrop refuses to give him a hug until he's clean... Sloppy reconsiders. Could it be that getting clean is nearly as fun as getting dirty?

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2018 July #1
    Sloppy the tree dragon is covered in mud, but he does not want to take a bath. He would like his friend Dewdrop the fairy to give him a hug, but she says he is too dirty. She tries to entice Sloppy with a basket of sponges and shampoo, but Sloppy is nervous about going into the pond. He fears that sharks or crocodiles will nibble his toes. As Dewdrop and Sloppy negotiate, a mother duck arrives with her ducklings. The little ones are afraid to jump in. Their anxious quacks are humorously translated as "Sharks! Crocodiles!" Sloppy bravely volunteers to test the water to show the ducklings they will be OK. 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. The cheerful tale concludes with Sloppy feeling wonderfully clean, but since he loves mud, he is sure to need another bath soon! Preschool-Kindergarten. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
