Jena, June 3, 2007 (view all comments by Jena)
"My house is me, and I am it. My house is where I like to be, and it looks like all my dreams." The Big Orange Splot is about being able to express yourself, even when others don't want you to. It takes place in one of those suburban neighborhoods where all the houses look alike, and then one day, a seagull carrying a can of orange paint (no one knows why) flies over Mr. Plumbean's house and drops the can of paint (no one knows why). His neighbors, who are very proud of their nice, neat street encourage him to take care of the eyesore, so Plumbean considers the problem, and then goes to the hardware store...

This is one of my favorite children's books (and my sisters', too)! Mom used to read this to us on a regular basis before we could read it ourselves, and I still enjoy this book as an adult.
