The Green Bath

Written by Margaret Mahy

Illustrated by Steven Kellogg

Bath-time turns into a fantastical adventure in the hands of two of children's literature's best.

When you think of a bath do you think of . . .
Racing across the beach?
Splashing near a mermaid?
Cruising with a sea serpent?
Battling fearsome (and soap-loathing) pirates?

Well you haven't met the Green Bath yet!
Turn the page now for the (bath) time of your life!

Reviews and Awards

“[T]he late Mahy’s boundless whimsy and Kellogg’s freewheeling sense of play combine in a rowdy swashbuckling adventure…. Like this acclaimed duo’s last collaboration, this story is distinguished by a frenetic energy, old-fashioned charm, and rapid plot zigzags.” - Publishers Weekly

“Mahy dots her story with irreverent fun, while Kellogg fills the spreads with exuberant, swirling watercolors dense with detail. Together the text and images offer an imaginary picture of bath time sure to persuade even the most skeptical bather of the joys of ablution.” - Booklist

“Mahy’s spot-on text is perfectly matched by Kellogg’s illustrations done in his trademark style. Shades of green suffuse the scenes featuring the tub in a delightfully subtle and clever way. Sammy’s abundant imagination is matched only by his actual bathtub escapade.” - School Library Journal
