As your bath water drains down the plughole, that slurping sound is the Bath Monster – dirty bath water is his SECOND favourite food. No one wants to find out what his FIRST favourite food is… until Jackson decides he doesn't believe in the Bath Monster any more, and he is never going to have a bath again. Starving, the Bath Monster comes to see Jackson and it turns out his FIRST favourite food is… not little kids, but mud pies!
