The Messy Book

We rated this book:


The story is about a cat making a pile of mess. The dog suggests that he clean it up, but the cat tries to shove it over to a different place, and the mess ends up in the forest. The forest animals do not like that, but they kind of like the pile of stuff and start playing with it. There is more mess, which ends up in the ocean. Now all animals, both water and forest animals, are together in the mess. The mess is wet, and the dog keeps asking to clean it up, but nobody wants to. Cleaning is boring, so they try with a water hose (which makes it more messy) and a vacuum cleaner…which seems to work until it explodes. So finally all animals go to clean up, and all things are put back into place. They have a party to celebrate and they play. Guess what? They make another mess!

This book is funny. It is hard sometimes to understand where they are going with the next thing, but I guess it is supposed to be messy. The best part is the explosion of the vacuum cleaner. I laughed hard at that one.
