Review: Mrs Wishy-Washy's Christmas

Mrs Wishy-Washy is a practical farm girl. When it's time for her animals to get spick and span for the festive season, she orders them into an ice cold tub in the snow.

But cow, pig and duck are not happy. "I'll wheeze and sneeze!" cries cow. "My snout will freeze!" wails pig. But duck has a plan.

Into the house they trundle, while Mrs Wishy-Washy is away at the shops, and into a hot pink bath with shower caps and pink shampoo! Ahhhh... that's the life! Warm and toasty, sweet and clean.

But what will Mrs Wishy-Washy do when she catches her farmyard clan in her adorably sweet bathroom?

Let's just say a little Christmas cheer goes a long way. And you can imagine even more surprises when the animals open their Christmas presents - soap, bubble bath and a brush on a rope!

An adorable story with rhyming text that's perfect for animal lovers.
