Elliot's Bath
Written and illustrated by: Andrea Beck

Review by: Robin Hatfield

     Elliot is back! The illustrations by Ms. Beck are brilliant and her stories are wonderful. In this adventure, Elliot and his friends are getting the stage ready for the big talent show set to take place that night. The stage is nearly finished, just a little painting left to do. Socks is up on
the ladder and reaches to touch up some blue paint, when, OOPS, she slips and the paint spills all over her and Elliot. They are covered. What are they going to do, the show is only hours away. Everyone decided the only thing to do is give them a bath. A stuffed moose and a sock monkey are a little uneasy at the idea of a bath. Elliot had had his feet in the pond before, but had never been all wet. They all head to the bathroom and everyone helps prepare the bath water. Elliot and Socks test the water, it is just right, so they jump in. The pair splashes and plays at first. What do you think would happen next? Elliot starts to feel funny-his arms and legs and getting heavy and the water has soaked through his fur and into his stuffing! He was getting heavy. Something also began happening to Socks. As they were scrubbing, the water was getting bluer and Socks was turning a shade of purple. "My favorite color" she exclaimed. Her new color suddenly seems less important when the bathers realize they are too heavy to move or pull the drain plug. Beaverton comes up with a plan to pull the plug and hoist them out of the sink. Once Elliot and Socks are out, they need to be dried off in time for the talent show. They try towels, but that didn't work very well. Angel tries flapping her wings but just cannot make enough air. Beaverton tries the hair dryer, but the hot air burns Elliot's ears. Socks and Elliot sit back to back in a puddle of water wondering if they will ever dry out. Suddenly Elliot had an idea. What they do next will make you laugh.
All of Elliot's friends want to have a turn and the talent show is a success. This is an amazing story to overcoming challenges and trying others ideas. It is light-hearted enough to delight the whole family.
