A Perfectly Messed-Up Story by Patrick McDonnell

“Who would eat a jelly sandwich… while reading MY book?”

Little Louie’s dismayed look on the cover lets us know that something is amiss here.  Someone has modified his book title with crayon and spilled lots of icky things on it.  Inside, the story begins with Louie skipping along into his unknown “perfect story” until a blob of jelly falls onto the page.  He sniffs, licks and gets upset about it and is further aggravated by a blob of peanut butter – “the chunky kind!” – and a series of other book-wrecking messes.  Despite these setbacks, Louie realizes that we are still reading his story and declares that it is worth telling, “messes and all”.

The art is quite clever here; the offending “pb and j” look so real, you’ll feel compelled to wipe it up.  Nothing really happens in the story except for the interruptions.  It’s just a silly, fun read.  Readers ages 3 to 63 will enjoy this light picture book, especially if it is read aloud by one for the other.
