Now you may not believe this (I swear that it's true): A girl named Petula had so much to do she couldn't find time to get certain things done, like naptime and clean-up -- the things that aren't fun. Especially she couldn't find time for a bath. When her mother said "Bath time!" Petula just laughed and ran off to get even dirtier still. Her name was Petula Priscilla McDill.<P>Most story books are meant to be read aloud. This wild and wonderful zinger shouldn't just be read aloud: it should be play acted, complete with over-the-top facial gestures and operatic inflection on "Pe-tooooo-la!"<P>Petula's bath-time abstinence is becoming a problem, especially when an ancient parental threat comes true: a carrot starts growing from Petula's ear. Undaunted, she simply ties a ribbon around the offending veggie. It's only when Petula grows into an entire vegetable garden, and the neighbors's become picky, picky, picky, that our dirty damsel must again come clean.<P>With rollicking rhymes as clever as Dr. Seuss, made even more delicious by the equally outrageous and colorful masterpieces drawn by Jackie Snider; Petula, Who Wouldn't Take a Bath is guaranteed to plug bath-time boredom forever.
