KIRKUS REVIEW

An innocent mistake (or three) is ill timed, as one family must be on their best behavior for a relative’s wedding. Recounting other mistakes that he has observed as his defense, Jackson tries to convince his mother that perhaps she’s looking at things the wrong way. He tries to explain that the makeover he gave his sister, Cammy, using permanent markers and gum, was not only an innocent mistake, but might actually be a good thing. Hidden from view until the end of the story, Cammy seems unfazed by the conversation, insisting that she looks beautiful as she beams at her brother. A tattooed bride takes it all in stride as she examines the children before managing to bump into the mother, causing her to spill her punch. Realistic illustrations will make children laugh as they learn that anyone really can make a mistake. Entertaining and clever. (Picture book. 3-7)
