Scaredy Bath




A gorgeous bubble-filled ode to bath-time chaos, as seen from the bath’s point of view. From the inimitable Zoë Foster Blake, author of the bestselling No One Likes a Fart.

Bath-time is fun! There’s the bubbles, the bath toys and lots of splashing of course. But have you ever wondered what it’s like for the bath?
Scaredy Bath does not like bath time . . . the piping hot water, the gooey muck and especially not the small boisterous grubby ones that shout and splash and make Scaredy all mucky! What’s a bath to do? Will Scaredy Bath ever enjoy bath time?
Scaredy Bath is a delightful new addition to Zoë's much-loved brand of picture books that celebrate the ups and downs of family life. Joyously brought to life by the hilarious splash-filled illustrations of Daniel Gray-Barnett.

About the authors

Zoë Foster Blake

Zoë Foster Blake writes fiction, non-fiction and children’s picture books because she enjoys hijacking shelf space across multiple genres in bookshops.
Zoë has written four novels, Air Kisses, Playing the Field, The Younger Man and The Wrong Girl; three self-help/relationship books, Textbook Romance, Break-Up Boss and LOVE!, and Amazinger Face, a collection of her best beauty tips and tricks after spending years as a beauty director.
Zoe¨’s first picture book, No One Likes a Fart, was released in 2017 and was the fastest-selling Australian picture book since Bookscan records began. (People DO like farts!) It's a sales record-breaker and a bookseller favourite with over 120,000 copies sold. It won the ABIA for Picture Book of the Year in 2018, and has also been published in North America, Italy and Japan. She published a sequel, Fart and Burp are Superstinkers in 2021, following Back to Sleep in 2020.
Zoë lives in Springfield with her husband, Homer, and her three children, Maggie, Lisa and Bart.
