There is mud

Oh, what a mess!
Who did it?

Someone is tracking muddy footprints through the house. Is it little Ben? (No, he's just scribbling on the walls.) Is it Sarah? (No, she's playing dress-up with clothes scattered eveywhere.) Kid after kid says, "Not me!" -- until we finally track the culprit all the way to the bathtub. The surprise

This is a fabulous book. I love the rhyming and my kids really enjoyed the plot. Every page is filled with another child (who is currently in the middle of creating another mess) of course the mud is the worst mess of all and the culprit explains why all the kids have been allowed to make their messes along the way. Very cute story. The pictures were really enjoyable as well.
