It’s Bring Your Kids to Work Day and Dad is taking Nat and her polar bear to Mr. McDermott’s Detergents and Soaps. Nat promises Bear will be no trouble until she hears that Floppery Flippery Slippery Slop sound, and she wonders just who else Bear has brought with him. Surely a big polar bear and all his pesky friends couldn’t get into too much bubbly troubly in a soap factory, right?

"Lisa Dalrymple’s rhyming text is lighthearted and engaging...Pratt’s illustrations are bright, colourful and action-packed. The rhyming text gives the illustrator a lot of scope to provide readers with more detail about the narrative."
