There’s Trouble in Walla Walla

Double Trouble

Andrew Clements is best known for his breakout chapter book Frindle.  (If you sold 2.5 million copies you’d get your name on the map too.)

This lesser known gem is his magnum opus in the picture book realm.  Lulu and grown-ups in her school plunge into a bizarre word warp with every whily-nily, cotton-pickin’, razzle-dazzle, double-dippin’, mish-mashed word combination you have ever heard.  It’s a serious challenge to read aloud with expression and fluency, but it’s so worth it!
