This olâ€™ boy needs a bath!After he finds a tumbleweed in his chaps and the numerous bugs buzzing around him affect his hearing, the cowboy decides itâ€™s time to head to the river. Once there, he peels off all his clothes and tells his trusty old dog to guard them against strangers. He takes a refreshing bath and emerges clean as corn â€“ but so fresh-smelling that his dog doesnâ€™t recognize him! Negotiations over the return of the clothes prove fruitless. A wrestling match ensues in a tale that grows taller by the sentence, climaxing in a fabric-speckled dust devil. Amy Timberlake has inserted a Western twang into this tale of filth and friendship, and Adam Rex has found many creative means of bodily concealment in his expressive, comical paintings.
