In a series of letters, Alex attempts to convince his parents that he shouldn't have to share a room with his baby brother, Ethan. After all, when Ethan sleeps, he sounds like the cat coughing up fur balls. Ethan also sticks crayons up his nose and barks like a walrus! All poor Alex wants is his old room back.
Readers will be laughing out loud as they read Mom and Dad's replies, explaining that his new little sister, Annie needs her privacy to do girl stuff. But Alex will not be swayed and devises his own ways to handle the situation, which include taping the room, and pleading that even his friend Stinky's dog Lurch has his own room! After all, it's more than a room, it's the principle of the thing.
Alex eventually pulls it off and convinces his dad that he needs his own space. Dad builds Alex a special place of his own--a brand new tree house. But, in the end, Alex realizes, who will he play ping-pong with?
Every child longs for their own room, but sometimes it's just not possible. I Wanna New Room is a humorous book that can give kids a new outlook on the situation. The wonderful illustrations by David Catrow add to the flair and will have readers wondering, what will Alex want next?
