Yummie, Yummie...Dirty Socks!

Michael's room was always a disaster area, strewn with all kinds of litter--heaps of papers, piles of crumpled clothes, and dirty socks everywhere. And that was just the top layer! The trouble was, half the room belonged to Michael's brother Norman the neatness nut. It was the battle of the bedroom--with Norman fighting to keep his spotless territory free from the invasion of Michael's mess.

But that was before the appearance of the most amazing plants ever! Suddenly Michael's junk heap disappeared and the room was taken over by the two giant plants that gobbled up socks faster than anyone could supply them! And their appetites were growing bigger every day!

When the plant that militant slob Michael grows from his mail-order seeds develops an appetite for dirty socks, Michael and his neatnik brother, Norman, join together to persuade their parents to let them keep the ever-growing-and voracious-greenery.

    How many books are so funny that they can make you laugh out loud? Not many, right? This book is so hilariously funny that I have gone back to read it over and over again, and I laughed (really loudly) at least once. This is so fun! Michael and Norman, two brothers with very different personalities, have to share a room. Messy Michael and Neat Norman get seeds in the mail, and when they plant them, huge plants grow in their rooms. Well, Michael's is huge. Norman's is puny. But why? It turns out, Michael's plant eats dirty socks! Norman's eats clean ones. There are so many funny moments in this book, I'd recommend it to everyone! Even my mom thinks this is funny! SPORTS_STAR!
