Billy Twitters and his Blue Whale Problem by Mac Barnett and illustarted by Adam Rex

When Billy Twitters doesn’t clean up his room or brush his teeth or eat his peas, his parents employ a unique form of punishment. They give him a blue whale. And Billy has to figure out how to take care of it. Not surprisingly, the whale becomes a problem. (Its tongue weighs as much as 400 cats.) But Billy comes up with a pretty clever solution. This book’s a winner for spectacularly messy and imaginative kids everywhere — especially if they’re into learning detailed facts about blue whales.
