This Scholastic classic is now available in a levelled reader format!

Christopher is a good kid with one bad habit: he refuses to clean his room. He likes it that way, cheesy socks and all. Even the bugs don't want to stick around. Finally, the critters unite. The fish convince the cockroaches to send a message to Christopher: clean your room!

Itah Sadu's irresistible storytelling voice and Roy Condy's charming illustrations shine in this hilarious book that will appeal to anyone who has ever had a messy room — or lived with someone who has! This Canadian favourite is now available in a fresh new levelled format for growing readers.
