In this rhyming tale we are introduced to a filthy little girl called Gerturde Brown who everyone calls Dirty Gertie. No matter how much her mother nags her to clean herself up she just will not have a bath.  One night though, a family of bugs follow her smell to eat the grime off her skin! When dirty Gertie wakes up to find the family eating their dinner she is horrified and jumps in the shower. Gertrude still likes playing in the mud but now she has learnt her lesson and always cleans afterwards. As for that yucky bug family, they are off to find another dirty child!
