Handling this expansively extending book with its concertina pages may be a challenge to small people on their own. If they want to read the book again, or even move on to the next page, grown-up fingers will be needed to refold the pages, once they have been explored and chuckled over. As PW dreams his (or her?) way through bath time, the reader must unfold the right-hand pages to see where the bath time flights of fancy take him. When PW becomes a deep-sea diver, for instance, the page folds down, and down again, to the ocean floor and a chest of treasure. PW the water-skier flies high into the sky as you 'pull-the-pages' (or, to be more accurate, unfold and lift the flaps on the differently shaped and cut pages). It's good fun. PW is full of life - maybe a cousin of Colin McNaughton's Preston Pig. Numerous cheerful bath time friends join him in his adventures which are revealed on bright, bold and shiny pages which might not withstand being opened up in the bath itself, but could certainly maage a cloth wiping them clean of sticky finger marks ready for the next time.
