"What oops?" said Mother.
"Big oops," said Henry. "I think I made a boo-boo...a TUB-boo-boo."
"A tub-boo-boo. I just wanted to stop one drippy drop. Slow the flow with my little big toe. And now -- I'm stuck! I'm stuck in the tub and can't get out."
While taking a bath, Henry tries to stop a drip of a drop with his little big toe. Now he's stuck in the tub and can't get out. And everyone who comes to help him makes a tub-boo-boo, too.
Can they be rescued before they turn all pruney -- and make the Evening News?
Margie Palatini's hilarious text and Glin Dibley's giddy art create a zany, zesty bathtime romp.
Critique: We've all been there. You're snorkeling around a good bubble bath, trying to wash off a long day's worth of playground dirt. And then "one drippy drop" from the faucet starts to drive you crazy. So what do you do? Why "slow the flow with [your] little big toe," of course. Just like wild-haired little Henry Hathaway did. Only Henry wasn't so lucky; Henry got stuck.
"Oops."So Mother climbs in the bath: "She was absolutely sure, positively positive that if she could just wiggle her fingers up into the spigot and wrangle them around Henry's little big toe... why... well... uh...." And before you can say "What the hay?" (that's Dad's line), everyone from the plumber to the policeman tries to help, committing their own tub-boo-boos and getting "stuck smack-dab in the spout."
"What oops?" said Mother.
"Big oops," said Henry. "I think I made a boo-boo... a TUB-boo-boo."
This silly, cyclical story plays well to the strengths of unapologetic goofball Margie Palatini (Zoom Broom, The Web Files), who's never afraid to get messy with the sort of repetitive wordplay that kids love. But what you'll likely love first and best about Tub-Boo-Boo are the surreal, Stretch Armstrong-style illustrations of Glin Dibley (better known in the teen world as Michael Koelsch, for his Strange Kid Chronicles, Magic cards, and such). With Dibley's unlikely palette--spacey blues and greens and browns accented with arresting orange hair and just-polished red fingernails--and a bubble-headed cast of bathers that always looks just half-inflated, it's hard not to stare.
