From the Publisher
First Line The Tub People stood in a line all day on the edge of the bathtub. There were seven of them, and they always stood in the same order--the father, the mother, the grandmother, the doctor, the policeman, the child and the dog.
Editors Note The tub people have to rescue the tub child when the water rushes down the drain before the tub people are put safely on the shelf.
