A Perfectly Messed-Up Story Summary


A Perfectly Messed-Up Story by Patrick McDonnell

In this interactive and engaging read-aloud, bestselling author and award-winning artist Patrick McDonnell creates a funny, engaging, and almost perfect story about embracing life's messes.

Little Louie's story keeps getting messed up, and he's not happy about it! What's the point of telling his tale if he can't tell it perfectly? But when he stops and takes a deep breath, he realises that everything is actually just fine, and his story is a good one - imperfections and all.

A Perfectly Messed-Up Story Reviews


* "Brilliant.... A playful, funny, and friendly treatment of anxiety and life's unpredictable messes."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
* "Louie's exaggerated reactions...will trigger laughs with every page turn....McDonnell... excels at reminding his characters--and readers--that it's possible to keep it together even when life has jelly all over it."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Classic McDonnell pen, ink, and watercolor pastels blend with mixed-media and crayon messes to make this untidy tale a victory for unkempt books everywhere. Keep calm, and read on!"--School Library Journal
"The pleasures of watching a book depart from its conventions and address its sticky-fingered reader will tickle even the littlest postmodernist."--New York Times Book Review
"This [one] is a fun one-Kiddos who get messy with their books will likely giggle."--Booklist
