What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Ian always follows the rules. His sister, Jenny, breaks them all the time-especially “Don’t pinch.” So Ian is thrilled when the house where his family is vacationing posts a tidy list of rules. But when Jenny breaks them all, the house itself decides it’s time for payback. The rug, the stove, and the bathtub are hungry for rulebreaker soup, and they’ve found the perfect ingredient: Jenny! Now Ian is faced with a thorny question: What if saving your sister means breaking the rules? From the New York Times best-selling team of Mac Barnett and Matthew Myers comes a hilarious tale of sibling rivalry, moral complexity, and disgruntled monsters, perfect for sharing with your own favorite rulebreakers. Praise for Count the Monkeys “This spot-on spoof of counting books is the perfect reward for anyone who’s put in a hard day’s work with numbers, big or small.” -Publishers Weekly, starred review Praise for Oh No! Not Again! “Wonderfully ridiculous in premise and execution and abounding in creative touches, this will surely spark student spinoffs.” -Kirkus Reviews, starred review Praise for Chloe and the Lion “[R]at-a-tat dialogue and fresh visuals should keep it at the top of the bedtime pile.” -Publishers Weekly Praise for Mustache “Youngsters will get a kick out of this kingly comedy .” -Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books Praise for Oh No! “A must-have.” -Kirkus Reviews, starred review Praise for Billy Twitters and His Blue Whale Problem “Definitely funny and slyly subversive.” -Kirkus Reviews, starred review
