Pirates Don't Take Baths by John Segal

For any young child (or pig), there are few things more excruciating, more traumatic, more torturous than bath time. And this little pig is putting his hoof down. No. More. BATHS. But how can he possibly accomplish this? Well, by being someone else, of course. After all, everyone knows that pirates, astronauts, and knights in shining armour just to name a few - never, EVER take baths. Now if only he can convince his mother...This humorous story is the perfect choice for kids and parents who know all too well the never ending struggle of bath time.
