A topsy-turvey tale of two quibbling siblings and one embattled bedroom, of two peculiar pets and one fantastic quest.
This antagonistic, Oscar-and-Felix-style relationship is the genesis of a wacky fantasy about a room so messy it grows things---namely 'mess pets'. McElmurry's funky, gouache paintings in psychedelic shades exude good humor as she portrays icky landmarks such as Spilled Milk Lagoon and Dust Bunny Mountain, inhabited by sneezing rabbits. — Publisher's Weekly
