This book is about Estelle and how she is taking a nice pleasant bath, when suddenly she opens her eyes and there is a mouse right there with her in the tub! Estelle lets out a scream and they go chasing throughout the house. They make a terrible mess in the kitchen, where Estelle grabbed a broom to get the mouse with.

I think the rhymes and story (especially at the end) were really cute!! With that said, I don't think I would read this to a class because I think it's inappropriate. All throughout the book, the woman is running around nude, only barely being covered by a newspaper or bubbles or other random objects. Although some may find it humorous, I don't think it would be right to read to children and I would have liked to read it to a class if she had at least bothered to put on a robe.
I can't stop laughing after reading this book, we bought it to read over & over. We highly recommend.
My daughter and I had such a fun time with this book. It was funny and cute.
My son just about died laughing when he saw Estelle's soapy bum!
Fun rhymer. Contains rodents and mild nudity.
