Description


A funny story about a boy, a robot, and a BIG, BIG mess!  This Level D book is perfect for kindergarten readers.  From the creator of the widely popular Fly Guy books!

"Fix this mess!" Jake tells Robug. But Robug just makes things worse. Robug finally figures out how to fix the mess—but it's not what Jake expected.

Tedd Arnold's illustrations of Robug's frantic efforts are laugh-out-loud funny, as Robug tries again and again to fix the mess—stirring up clouds of dust, old pizza boxes, and banana peels, and leaving Jake's cat more and more confused as he bounces from the couch to the top of the television.

Fix This Mess! is an International Literacy Association-CBC Children’s Choice

The award-winning I Like to Read® series focuses on guided reading levels A through G, based upon Fountas and Pinnell standards. Acclaimed author-illustrators--including winners of Caldecott, Theodor Seuss Geisel, and Coretta Scott King honors—create original, high quality illustrations that support comprehension of simple text and are fun for kids to read with parents, teachers, or on their own!

Suitable for late kindergarten readers, Level D books feature wider vocabulary, longer sentences, and greater variety in sentence structure than Levels A, B, and C. When Level D is mastered, follow up with Level E.

Praise For…


"This is a good, simple and funny tale, a pleasing eyeful working on a familiar motif . . . It hits the spot for beginning readers, and read-alongs are welcome, perhaps inevitable."—Kirkus Reviews
 
"Funny details . . . build momentum from page to page, and the vocabulary is simple enough to allow the newest readers to enjoy it all on their own."—The Horn Book
 
"Arnold offers emergent readers a predictable text, humorous cartoon-style illustrations, and a gentle reminder that we must all clean up after ourselves. . . . The succinct, repeating text will be accessible to beginning readers, and children are sure to love Robug (who resembles a Roomba with a face), especially as he becomes more and more annoyed with Jake’s orders."—Booklist
 
"Arnold, the author of Dirty Gert (Holiday House, 2013) and the 'Fly Guy' books (Scholastic), continues to demonstrate his understanding of children’s humor through his simple but clever dialogue and hilarious artwork. . . . A fun read for everyone, the mantra 'I will fix this mess' will be repeated in well-practiced robot voices by children, teachers, and parents alike."—School Library Journal
