Ellis and Erin are twins, and they love to draw and climb and play—but they also love looking for trouble! Will they find trouble in the kitchen or the bathroom? Maybe it’s in their bedroom, or outside in their garden? Follow the twins on a fun-filled journey through their house, through their backyard, to the attic, and back, as they search for trouble and get into all sorts of mischief on the way. Will they ever find trouble? Or will trouble find them?
What I loved: The plot is relatively simple, and children will recognize all the trouble that the twins get into (even if they don't recognize it as such). The book is written in a good sized font and is easy to read aloud. The length is great for the preschool and early elementary school aged crowd. The pictures are simple and suit the story well.
What left me wanting more: As a parent, I love seeing good habits in books, and this one is full of mess and an obvious lack of parents. It's a silly book, so not to be taken too seriously, even when one child grabs a piece of cake right off the platter in the fridge or the dog's excretions outside. The illustrations are very sketchlike, which will appeal to some but is pretty simple throughout. SOme extra visual interest to go along with the length would have been nice.
Final verdict: Overall, this is a silly picture book about the search for trouble.
