Bertie's personal hygiene leaves a lot to be desired. He eats candy off the floor. He picks his nose. He gives the dog a furry lick hello. "No, Bertie! That's dirty, Bertie!" says his disgusted yet caring family. Will Bertie ever stop being so gross?

In the spirit of David Shannon's Caldecott Honor book No, David!, Dirty Bertie teaches without preaching. David Roberts's hilarious illustrations and wacky-yet-wise story will have young readers laughing out loud--and promising never to be "dirty Bertie" again!
