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. (from the first line)
|Seven members of a wooden toy family ride on the floating soap and compete in swimming races. After the near loss of the Tub Child down the drain, they are all reunited on a warm bed, where they mountain climb on the ridges formed by soft quilts. A The New York Times Outstanding Book of 1993. Color illustrations.|
From the Publisher:
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.
