Comments What's With This Room?

  • Heidi-Marie

    Not my favorite of Lichtenheld's works, but there are a lot of kids--especially messy boys!--who will love this. I like his excuses for the various messes in his room. And while the room is definitely a mess, from the bird's-eye view I couldn't help thinking, "I've seen worse." (It just wasn't as smelly!) The rhyming keeps the story going, though there were a couple of parts that I got a bit tripped up. I think this would work best for a school-age storytime as they would get the humor more (cle [...]

    A typical parent-child dilemmaWhat's With This Room? is told from two opposing viewpoints. Of course the child thinks his room is just fine, with underwear hanging off the fan, mold festering in the corner, and cockroach siblings fighting with one another. As he passes off a huge pile as an experiment waiting to explode does just that: EXPLODE! Now his room is clean. Maybe that is what he was waiting for all along.Used for "What a Mess!" Storytime-October, 2010.

    Very cute! Silly and funny.

    This is a very humorous book about a boy's messy room. The rhyming narrative is fun to read aloud and the colorful illustrations are terrific. The details are quite amusing, especially the nod to René Magritte's famous artwork, The Treachery of Images, which declares, "Ceci n'est pas une pipe." I also enjoyed checking out the endpages, with the book on Chaos Theory next to the book on the Basics of Putrification, along with a book titled Clutterology. I liked seeing the famous poster of Albert [...]

    This was a little far out there in my opinion about parents going into a bedroom that was beyond hideous; telling the boy about how nasty it was including dirty underwear on the celing fan and mold and mildew everywhere etc. REALLY? Do you really want to encourage your child to have their room like this? Then after the parents talk the boy comes back and tells his parents it's all about education, like math and science experiments and in a few years would be an excavation dig for his parents to [...]

    In paperback, with a different title, What Mess? this book was hysterical and kids loved it. The little boy is explaining to his parents that far from just having a messy room he is actually experimenting in it. The five layers of nasty laundry is an archaeological dig in creating, and the underwear on the ceiling fan is an investigation into the centrifugal force of odors. The green food mold in the corner is potential Halloween candy. But what happens when the volcano in the middle of the room [...]


  • Rebecca Knight

    Awesome! Hilarious! Read this yesterday to a group of 2nd graders, and they loved it so much, it took a half hour to get through it. Every single page deserves careful examination, the art work is so great. The kids wanted to look at every detail. So many things made us laugh. Underwear hanging from the ceiling fan, the lunch turning into candy-goo in the corner, the mite sister crying "He's bugging me!" Continuous fun, every single page. Also, great verse, fun to read because of the rhyming, an [...]

    I really enjoyed the rhyming sequence that was carried on throughout What’s with this Room. (I keep finding myself starting to rhyme my review.) The illustrations were humorous and full of imagination. I enjoyed the creativity that was put into this book. The concept of a messy room is something children will find funny and most likely be able to relate to themselves because I know I can. The story teaches that instead of making up excuses it is best to just own up to, in this case a messy roo [...]

    This is one of my favorite story to read to my younger brother. I read it fast, and light hearted. The kid in this story has a reason for everything, I enjoy everything he comes up with, one of my favorite lines goes something like, if it's not science it's art. The clearer lines. The drawings in the book helps bring the words to life.


  • Alice

    This book was funny. If you are having trouble getting you kids to keep their rooms clean, this might do the trick. The excuses the kids comes up with as to why is room is such a mess is hilarious. I like the pictures and I also like things all in rhyme!


  • Lorraine Robinson

    I loved this book. Great illustrations. Shows how to turn text around within the story from one point of view to another. Rhyming. Great read aloud. Kids can relate to the story because having a messy room is a common thing.


  • Kathy Ellen Davis

    Cute book!I love the rhyme and the illustrations.And the justification of the main character about why his room isn't clean!It's a fresh spin on the whole"Clean your room" thing.And the ending is funny.A fun read!


  • Kimberly Entrekin

    a topic all children can relate to. patents telling them to clean their room. but I love all the excuses he makes and his side of the story. I loved the vocabulary used words we can teach and relate to know words


  • Sarah

    This book is something you can read if your having trouble with students not putting things away or cleaning up after themselves at school. Although this book is about a boy having a messy room at home, you can definitely extend it to relate to your students at school.


  • Nakitah

    A student is able to live in a room that hsi parents deem uninhabitable, but he proves to them that a little creativity can help any situation. This can be paired with a lesson about recycling and how we can use different materials to form new things.


  • Dan

    What a cute, inventive book! As a parent of young kids (and a former messy kid too), I identified with so many parts of the book.


  • Emily

    cute book about messy rooms.


  • Jess

    Great book for older kids and will gross them out!


  • Elvira Baryakina

    Hilarious. Tom Lichtenheld, you rock. :)


  • Zonia

    Kid's will recognize this room and maybe in the end clean there room, too.


  • Samantha

    Take a tour of the dirtiest room ever! Rhyming text describes the gross layers of debris while ink, watercolor, colored pencils, and pastels bring the mess to fully realized life! PreK-2.


  • Kamyshia
