Who made this mess?
When dad asks who left socks all over the place, a brother and sister insist that it was “Not Me.”
Dad is quite sure the kids are not telling the truth, until he is introduced to the actual Not Me, a creature who in turn accuses Not True, who exposes the real sock bandit, the ever-complaining Not Fair!
Parents and caregivers will appreciate this highly relatable book that manages to slyly address the blaming and excuse-making that often happens, while focusing on the humour of the situation.
