Bathroom Boogie

Publisher: Faber & Faber

Review

The house is quiet. The adults are at work. The children are at school. But suddenly the bathroom breaks into bizarre, boisterous boogie!

In this surreal rhyming story, the shiny tiles become a dance floor and the light a sparkling disco ball. DJ Shampoo plays some funky rhythms so Toothpaste wriggles, squiggles, twists and squeezes; Mouthwash makes some mega minty moves; Power Shower flicks water everywhere; the Toothbrush family rave in the sink; and the Sponges do the hokey-cokey with the Flannels. It’s watery, bubbly mayhem and a lot of puddle-y, party fun!

Foges and Murphy’s first rhyming picture book, Kitchen Disco, was chosen as a BookTrust Time to Read book in 2016, and given to 700,000 primary school children. This entertaining sequel is a cracking comical story for young children, for whom bathtime will never be the same again…
