Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sukie is worried — her parents are acting strange. When she runs in the house, her dad asks, "If all your friends jumped off a bridge, would you jump off a bridge too?" When she eats peas with her fingers, Mom yells, "You'll put an eye out with that thing!" andlt;BRandgt; What is going on? Have her parents been replaced by aliens? Are they robots with broken circuits? She and her older brothers decide to investigate. And what they discover leads to a kids-against-parents WAR! andlt;BRandgt; This very funny book casts a new light on family rules.

Synopsis:

Sukie and her brothers aren't sure what's going on with their parents--they're making even less sense than usual. The kids investigate, but when they find out it's just a plot to trick them into behaving, the kids declare war, confusing the parents right back. Illustrations.
