About the Book

It’s bath time! All the little piggies have had lots of fun playing, and now they’re dirty. But their mamas aren’t worried—they have just the machine to turn the Herculean task of bathing them into an adventure. Arthur Geisert’s intricate etchings reveal the inner workings of an enormous contraption that can lather and scrub a whole farm full of dirty little piggies in no time at all—and that’s not just a bunch of hogwash!

Advance Praise for Hogwash

"Readers and prereaders. . .will chortle, whether they come upon this before or after their individual ablutions." —Kirkus

"[M]aster of the 'page-turn'. . .only Geisert could take a one-word title and create such an engaging scenario." —Booklist

"[A] tantalizing, quirkily dignified. . .joyous world, where getting clean is as much fun as getting dirty." —Horn Book

"Pore over the cleverly devised ink-hatched and watercolor-tinted gadgetry, then...round up some kitchen gear for tear-free tubtime." —The Bulletin
