Praise for the hardcover edition:
"[T]his is one handsome book. Teckentrup creates strikingly graphic spreads from simple, large-scale shapes and expressionistic overlays of texture and color. The combination of the blunt text and bold pictures might even help cajole reluctant bathers to get their feet wet." —Publishers Weekly
"This should engender roars of approval." —Kirkus Reviews
