From School Library Journal

Grade 1-3?Adults may find this book fun to read aloud. The simple plot revolves around a young girl who is sent to the principal's office when she can't stop speaking in hyphenated slang words; e.g., higgledy-piggledy, mish-mash, nit-wit, etc. As it turns out, her teacher, the school nurse, and the principal seem to come down with the same affliction and, before finding a solution, run through a veritable compendium of hyphenated words and nonsense phrases, most of which rhyme. Those reading aloud should prepare themselves for the inevitable outpouring of similar words from the audience. Murdocca's bled double-page, lively watercolors on oversized pages are chockablock with cartoon characters and details to pore over, adding even more humor to the amusing story. Side-splitting fun.?Barbara McGinn, Oak Hill Elementary School, Severna Park, MD

It was an ordinary Monday morning in Walla Walla until Lulu raised her hand in class & said to her English teacher: "Mrs. Bell, I feel like a nit-wit. My homework is all higgledy-piggledy. Last night it was in tip-top shape, but now it's a mish-mash."
Mrs. Bell replied: "Nit-wit? Higgledy-piggledy? Mish-mash? Lulu, stop that flip-flop chitter-chatter or you'll be in double trouble!"
With those few words, the day took off into one super-duper, helter-skelter, word warp!
Soon student, teacher & principal are all figuring out what to do until the school nurse comes up with a plan. Will it work? Find out as you zig-zag through the jibber-jabber & yakety-yak of this huge, funny fantasy!
Fun with words at their most absurd & I've been to Walla Walla - fantastic onions!

This book was so funny that our reading class could not quit laughing. We would highly recommend it. If you are looking for a funny book, this is the one. There are four main characters: LuLu, Mrs. Carter, Mrs. Bell and Mr. Thomas. They all got caught up in a knock'em sock'em wibble-wobble word warp!

Double trouble will have you doubled over in stitches over the antics of a magnificent red-head named Lulu who sets the entire school ablaze with catchy 2 word phrases such as higgledy-piggledy, chitter chatter when she is sent trit-trot down to the principals office for all of her fancy-schmancy yak-yak. The illustrations are vibrant and engaging and each child has a precious button nose and bulbous eyes. You'll love the expressions both in the illustrations and the text! Don't miss this one. It's a hoot!

This is one of those wonderful read out loud books. Every class I've read it to really enjoys wonderful jumbled word play. Illustrations are lovely (Andrew Clements is very talented). I've read this book from kindergartners to 4th graders - all get a kick out of it.

Double Trouble in Walla Walla is simply an amazing book. Andrew Clement's use of wordplay makes this book enjoyable at any age level. As an elementary librarian, turned Educational Consultant, I have read this book aloud over 90 times to both children and adults. However, I am not entirely sure which age group enjoys the book more. Many thanks to the author. This book is indeed a pure treasure!

As a graduate student in elementary education, I am always looking for books that make literacy fun for kids. I have used this book with kindergarteners, who laughed so hard and clapped when it was over, and have a lesson plan to introduce hink-pinks to older elementary students using this book. My husband and I love this book as much as the kids I read it to. I recommend it to every teacher, and student, who loves to laugh and play with words.

Lulu is a pip! When words start cascading willy nilly out of her- its infectious. Kids will love it's sillyness and learn a lot about the latitude of English- as a fun language. The finale was a little crowded on the page- but I gave my storytime kids phrases and we said them all together adding to the hubbub!
