The story is about a little girl who finds an ornery little boy in her sock drawer. The little boys goes about the house creating messes that she has to clean up. It's a very cute, imaginative story.
Although the reading level is listed as 9-12, younger kids will enjoy the story, too.
The message of this book is that parent's should listen to what their children are saying. Why I say that is because in the book, the mom doesn't listed to what Shelly is trying to say to her.She just tells her to go to her room. Shelly comes twice to tell her that there's a little boy in her room but her mom tells her the same thing go back and tell the little boy to go away.
I think that this book was OK because the mom made the mess and sometimes she made the girl pick it up. But anyway, I still want you to read this book I think you would like it.
