Icky Sticky Dirty Boy


At some point, “I DO NOT WANT TO TAKE A BATH!” becomes the war cry of every 5-year-old boy, and Icky Sticky Dirty Boy is no different.  Through his alter ego, Tye transforms from a frog to a bear to a pig to a bird to a cat… all to escape the inevitability of bath time.  It is Mama’s job to get him clean, no matter WHAT he becomes.  Can Icky Sticky Dirty Boy avoid the unavoidable?

This is a heartwarming story about an imaginative little boy who is loved unconditionally.  It is a 680-word picture book for filthy children, ages 4-8.
