The Somewhat Bumpy Story Of The Bath On Legs
By Francine Bowden
Published by Pegasus Elliot Mackenzie Publishers Ltd
Told from the perspective of a snooty bath on legs, we hear the charming story of two children, generations apart, brought together by a mysterious and magical bathtub that transports its occupants at the push of a button.
A school teacher whose true love is reading and writing. Francine started this story in 2010, adding little snippets as ideas popped in her head like fizzing candy! Bowden is from Devon and feels lucky to be surrounded by green hills and the sounds of pheasants and chickens â€“ the quintessential country life!
Wonderful book... So beautifully written I felt like I was with the characters!
Great story.... When and where will the next adventure be?
This book is quite something. It took me on a great journey, I felt like a child again and I loved how the storylines and characters were interwoven so brilliantly by the narrative bathtub. Each character was endearing in their own way and the messages were clear; never under estimate a persons loneliness and longing or the drive of a young child wanting to make a change. Superb. Definately a winner.
Amazing. Good luck x
A truly mesmerising story. Good luck Frankie!

Well written and captivating- how wonderful to be transported to a place of your most inner dreams, all at bathtub. A winner.
This is an amazing book which my daughter loves and the author has a great way of bringing people into the book.
I thought this book was really good and different from most of the others, I like the fact it is about a bath.
Lovely original idea. Feel this could become a series of books taking children to different times.
A wonderful story told by a creative author. Keep them coming Frankie!

An awesome read which all members of our family loved
Excellent exciting read, a great story to behold, encompassing so many imaginative ways to wind the narrative through your thoughts, making you want to know what adventure the magical bath on legs is going to have next!
I was able to hear the voice of the bath speaking directly to me so I was able to empathise with her reduced situation. The stories the bath told are charming and educational without being sanctimonious. I have bought this book for two young relatives of mine, they are both looking forward to reading of other adventures from the bath's past life. A story to make you smile.
A delightful and uplifting story linking two delightful characters across time and social background with a very important message for future generations. A great read for children and adults alike. More please!
Fingers crossed!! x
