You might even get some ideas for YOUR room!

“… Newman’s mixed-media illustrations are bright with crisp details, which can make Bobbie’s messy room seem especially overwhelming—and her new room seem all the more “glamorous.” And there are some good ideas here for kids who need help sorting items into keep-it, fix-it-up, and time-to-go piles. The story is likely to spark ideas for kids longing for room overhauls of their own.”

— Kirkus Reviews

“Newman captures the little girl’s spunk in the text and the playful illustrations and provides a wonderful solution for children who cannot part with things and those who are just plain sloppy. VERDICT: This sweet story addresses a source of battles for many families.”
