The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the 2015 CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal This is a large-format picture book about the relationship between two young boys, whose friendship is tested by a many challenging situations. It's a story without any particular narrative, just a list of of mysterious rules such as 'Never step on a snail', 'Never argue with an umpire', 'Never leave the back door open overnight' or 'Never leave a red sock on the clothesline'. As each rule is broken – not always by accident – surprising consequences ensue, and readers are invited to decide for themselves what is really happening, and why.
