Trouble Gum

Trouble Gum By: Matthew Cordell

Ruben and his little brother Julius are having a boring day at home since it is raining.  They are bored playing with their toys and trying to stay quiet for their mom and Grammy. Grammy says try some gum but mom is unsure as gum usually makes a mess. But mom agrees but tells Ruben to follow the rules, which of course Ruben does not and this leads to a mess.

This is a funny book not because of the story or words but because of the pictures.  They are these little tiny pictures on huge pages and it is hysterical. The way the characters expressions change make this book a fun choice for read aloud. My fourth and fifth graders really enjoyed it and my kids at home did too.

My son borrowed this from the public library.
