Description

What will make Christopher clean his room? Christopher is a good kid with one bad habit: he refuses to clean his room. He likes it that way, cheesy socks and all. Even the bugs don't want to stick around. Finally the critters unite! The fish convince the cockroaches to send a message to Christopher: clean up your room! Itah Sadu's wild storytelling voice shines through this hilarious book that will appeal to anyone who has ever had a messy room - or lived with someone who has!
