In this lively addition to the funny Peep and Egg picture book series for toddlers, a reluctant chick named Egg overcomes her aversion to taking a bath.

Peep thinks Egg needs to take a bath after playing in the mud. But Egg is not taking a bath. Not in the river, not in the duck pond, and definitely not in the dog's water bowl―too slobbery! Does Peep have any tricks up her feathers to help a chick change her mind? Laura Gehl and Joyce Wan are back with another fun, colorful story that takes the "not" out of "I'm not taking a bath!"

"Wan’s seemingly digital illustrations use bold black lines filled with color and only a few added details to keep the focus on the characters, who are pleasantly rounded and easily recognizable farm animals with simple line-and-oval facial features that show remarkable range of emotion." Kirkus Reviews

"It’s a familiar story of opening oneself up to new experiences, but Gehl’s lighthearted dialogue and Wan’s chunky, emotive graphics keep it feeling fresh." – Publisher's Weekly
