Harry is a black and white dog who hates having a bath - so when he sees his owner with the dredded bath, he runs away. But in the end, harry gets so dirty that his owners dont recognise him and so he has to beg for the thing he used to dread so much so they let him back into the houshold.

Another funnybone tickling charmer by Gene Zion and Margaret Bloy Graham, who has drawn pictures of the gritty little dog in green and yellow settings. Because he hates baths, Harry buries the scrubbing brush one day and runs away from home to get really dirty. But when he returns, unrecognizable and to get blank stares from his family, Harry must undo his cleverness before he's welcomed again. Similar circumstances, identification and transfer, will make youngsters and their parents giggle at this. (Kirkus Reviews)
