"Lots of fun for the little ones to read along"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

My 3 year old daughter loves this book! She sits in bed after night time stories and I can hear her reciting it word for word. A fun and lively picture book.

"A fantastic book with great rhythm and rhyme "
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

My daughter has adored this book since she was about 7 months old (now 15 months). Although it's designed for children learning to read clearly much younger children will enjoy not only the story but the cleverly written rhythm and rhyme. It's a NZ classic that is part of a series that's had epic success around the world. In this story Mrs Wishy Washy gets the meanies all cleaned up after they create a splishy sploshy paint mess. Kids and adults alike will identify with the story.


Over forty million children have begun the road to reading with Mrs Wishy Washy. Now meet the meanies. They're the messiest mess she's ever seen! Has Mrs Wishy Washy finally met her match?

Another wipe-clean board book is about to be added to the immensely popular Mrs Wishy-Washy series. Joy Cowley and Elizabeth Fuller have pooled their talents once more to tell the story of the messy meanies who decide to play splashy-sploshy with some paint they discover in the garden shed.

Then along comes a very angry Mrs Wishy-Washy! She scrub-a-dubs the ceiling, she scrub-a-dubs the door, she scrub-a-dubs the windows and then she tubs and scrubs those meanies and hangs them out to dry! Young children love the rhyming silliness of that clean-freak Mrs Wishy-Washy and the messy little creatures she encounters on her travels.
