Not me by Nicola Killen

Egmont, 2010. ISBN 9781405248303.
The house is dirty. Crumbs on the floor, wet clothes scattered in the hall, bike tracks on the carpet, and handprints on the wall. Who has been making all this mess? Jake? Jane? Bertie? Paul? Louise? Or Jess the Pup? And, more to the point, who is going to clean it up?
This is a cute picture book perfect for sharing at bedtime. It raises issues of telling the truth and taking responsibility, as well as how easy it is for each person to do one little thing rather than having one person do a lot.
Miss 5 really enjoyed it and had a lot of fun joining in the repetitive text AND she remembered to take her dirty gumboots off before she came inside. Worth it just for that!!!
