Title: Edward Gets Messy
Author: Rita Meade
Illustrator: Olga Stern
Rating: 5/5 stars
“A very particular little pig discovers the joys that come with getting messy in this sweet and silly debut picture book.
Edward the pig never pets friendly dogs on the street. He never, ever eats food that spills or splatters. And he never, ever, EVER uses markers or glue sticks or paint. They are just too messy.
But what happens when—GLOOP!—a big tub of paint falls on Edward’s perfectly neat little head? Well, it might just turn out that getting messy has its upsides, too.
After all, even particular pigs can clean up afterward.“(description from Goodreads)
I’m terrible at reviewing children’s books, but I’ll try to come up with a few good words for this one because I enjoyed it so much.
It has everything you’d expect in a cute picture book: Edward, a pig who doesn’t like getting messy. incredible illustrations with vibrant colors, and a message for the young readers (and adults). It’s ok to enjoy yourself and get messy every now and then.
