The Dirty Little Boy
Written by Margaret Wise Brown
Illustrated by Steve Salerno

The Horn Book Guide, 10/15/2001
"A new generation will enjoy this gentle, humorous tale of a small boy's failed attemtps at bathing himself by copying farmyard animals...the new version features breezy illustrations with bold, black outlines and vibrant colors rendered in a variety of media--a surprisingly good match for Brown's lilting, insightful prose."

Family News, 7/1/2001
“A dirty little boy sets out to find out how other animals bathe and gets decidedly dirtier along the way. This edition of The Dirty Little Boy . . . by the beloved author Margaret Wise Brown, is based on a piece first published in Jack and Jill magazine in 1939. Steven Salerno's colorful stylized illustrations are the perfect accompaniment.”
