When bookshelves are saturated with stories about bedtime, a picture book about bath time is a treasure. Grimes’ text encompasses satisfying sounds and the sweet pleading dialogue of a parent at bath time. Zunon’s pencil and collage illustrations are vibrant, simultaneously tangible and surreal. Sail into this tender, magical, sea-worthy adventure.

— Kara, Wild Rumpus
