You'll pry my books off my cold, dead body. By the time you shift them all I'll be flat and dessicated.

Always Listen to Your Mother - Florence Parry Heide, Kyle M. Stone, Roxanne Heide Pierce Creepy little story about a lonely little boy whose controlling, clean freak mother allows him to play with the ghoulish new neighbor boy because he always listens to his mother. They have fun trashing the place.

The illustrations are very effective and I would have given it another star had it been a little longer. It seemed to stop abruptly.
