KIRKUS REVIEW

Household pandemonium erupts when Sophie Hartley’s Mom decides her uncooperative children need a major dose of chores, including a complex rotating job chart. Sophie and Nora, her older cleanliness-conscious sister, are willing to work as long as everyone does, but they’re mad because the boys are getting away with minimal work. It’s time to strike; when the house is sticky and stinky, will Mom and Dad finally see that the boys aren’t contributing? Funny family hijinks explode into pure hilarity with lively dialogue and a simple plot that reveal the children’s growing maturity levels orchestrated by busy, loving parents who are willing to sacrifice a clean house for children with strong character. (Fiction. 7-9)
