Back when I first started blogging (in the olden days : ), I featured one of John Segal’s books and he reached out to me via email to thank me for the post. I was so surprised and so pleased! We’ve stayed in touch ever since and I was happy to hear about his newest publication.
It’s called Pirates Don’t Take Baths. My kids love this book — especially Oscar! It’s a back-and-forth conversation between mother and child. He’s trying to argue his way out of a bath, and mom is playing along.
The story is cute and I’m such a fan of John’s illustration style. I love how he handled the smoke here:
Such a fun addition to our library.
