    There was a wolf called Wilson
    Who never brushed his hair
    He never washed his paws or face
    Or changed his underwear

    These disgustingly good stories are all about Whiffy Wilson, a wolf who isn't keen on being clean and only has time for grime.

    Covering a theme that will be familiar to many parents, this picture book finds everyone trying to persuade Whiffy Wilson to change his grotty ways and enjoy a clean break.

    Written in fantastically funny rhyming verse by Caryl Hart and illustrated by Leonie Lord, these books will inspire children to make the most of their bathtime and encourage many other positive habits.
