School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-4-When his mother gives up on trying to make Frankie clean up his disastrously messy room, the fourth-grader is happy to let things pile up, until his powerful imagination makes it clear that he needs to address the problem. The realistic portions of the story are told in text with pen illustrations, and the fantasy sequences are in comic-strip format. (c) Copyright 2011.
