Chirton Krauss is a good child -- the very goodest. He does everything he is told, when he is told. He even does good things without being told. He eats his broccoli, he goes to bed on time, and he never, ever sticks his finger up his nose. Meanwhile, Chirton's sister, Myrtle, is NOT quite as good. She stays up late, she never cleans out the rabbit's pen, and she drops her cocoa puffs all over the rug. But what will happen when Chirton Krauss decides that being the goody isn't always so good after all?
Bestselling and esteemed creator Lauren Child has beautifully crafted this charmingly fresh and humorous exploration of individuality and being yourself. Her vibrant illustrations celebrate the story of two siblings discovering who they are, and how liberating it is to move beyond labels and be their authentic selves. Lauren Child brings her creative talent and insight to this universal story that every child and parent will connect with and celebrate.
