About the Book

Overview

Bobbie’s room is so full of stuff that she and her best cousin Joanie can barely find a place to play. When her mom gives her two weeks to clear out the clutter, she comes up with the perfect plan: She’ll collect other people’s discards. Then she’ll turn the trash into treasures! But it seems she may need some help to make her dream of a glamorous big-kid room come true. Here’s a funny new take on a classic kid problem—what to do with a messy room. The solution is both clever and ecologically-minded.

Reviews

“Newman captures the little girl's spunk in the text and the playful illustrations and provides a wonderful solution for children who cannot part with things and those who are just plain sloppy. . . . This sweet story addresses a source of battles for many families.” —School Library Journal

“Newman's mixed-media illustrations are bright with crisp details, which can make Bobbie's messy room seem especially overwhelming—and her new room seem all the more glamorous. . . . The story is likely to spark ideas for kids longing for room overhauls of their own.” —Kirkus Reviews
