Synopsis

Ahoy, all kids who love -- or hate -- bathtime!

Get wet with Captain Bob, the bravest and best captain that ever sailed the Soapy Seas.

Step into Bath Bay, where bath toys are deep-diving sea creatures and the ocean can be drained with one mighty pull of the plug.

Enjoy this spirited picture book in which a small boy with a big imagination rules, and the most everyday activity becomes a grand adventure.
