It's Sunday morning, very early Sunday morning. Anthony and Nicholas are not supposed to wake their parents before 9:45 am. (Whenever that is.) Certainly, three puzzles falling off a shelf isn't enough to wake them. And what about some music or a game of boat in the living room? These wouldn't wake them up, would they?
But when Nick really yells help, the know they're in trouble. Then the boys and their parents discover something they never would have imagined.

There wasn't anything special about this book. Sure, it was silly and we can all relate, but is this even sort of memorable? Also, I wasn't a fan of the use of God in this book. Read morePublished on July 27, 2011 by Emma
