Max's room is a big mess! His sister Ruby, wants to help him clean it up. As Ruby helps Max clean up, Max has another idea in mind. He puts everything in his pockets including sticky bubbles, rocks, and an ant farm, so his sister does not throw it away or pick it up. At the end of the story, Ruby discovers that Max has all his cherished items in his pockets. Author, Rosemary Wells, once again is describing every day issues such as cleaning a messy room. In comparison to other books, "Max and Ruby's First Greek Myth"and "Bunny Party" Rosemary Wells put animals as the characters so it can be appealing to a younger audience. ( )

This story is so cute and fun for younger children. I'm sure every child has seen an episode of Max and Ruby. Max is always giving his older sister Ruby a hard time. While Ruby is trying to clean Max's room, Max is constantly putting toys and junk in his pocket. I love the illustrations, because there are a lot of life like items in this book. Ruby finished cleaning Max's room, when she discovers that Max put a lot of the junk in his pocket and everything rolls out all at one time. Max just sits there with a huge smile on his face, I'm sure is sister was quite pleased. This story is a good laugh. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0142301337, Paperback)

Max's room is a mess! There's a Popsicle melting in the closet, a tube of opened Miracle Bubbles on the floor, and the ant farm ants have escaped under the bed! It's definitely time to clean up. Max's sister, Ruby, is quick to take charge, and of course Max wants to help. But Max has his own ideas about picking up his room, so things don't turn out exactly as Ruby planned. Children will cheer as Max innocently and humorously outsmarts his older sister once again.
