Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0525469036, Hardcover)

From morning to nighttime, in households throughout the world, these words ring out:

But Mom . . . everybody has a messy room,
nobody has to wear boots,
everybody sleeps with the dog,
and nobody goes to bed early!

As a girl wheedles her mother to get her way throughout the day, the reader is treated to highly exaggerated imaginings of what life would be like if everybody did as she pleased and nobody had any responsibilities. Children and parents all too familiar with these tried-and-true excuses will love sharing this droll concept book.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:16:33 -0400)

Hoping her mother will let her have her own way, a girl describes in very exaggerated terms what other people are allowed to do.
