Mac Barnett and Matt Myers - Rules of the House — at Takoma Park Library (MD)

Tuesday, May 3, 2016 at 7:00 pm

Siblings Ian and Jenny are on their way to a vacation house in the woods. Ian’s raison d’être is following rules such as “Always pack a toothbrush,” whereas Jenny lives to ignore such dictums as “No pinching” and “No lying.” She wastes no time in breaking the rules posted on the front of their cabin, even the ominous “Never—ever—open the red door.” That night, Jenny learns that sometimes rule breakers do meet their comeuppance: several household furnishings come to life and declare their intention to have Jenny for dinner. So what’s a rule follower like Ian to do? “Run away” seems to be the obvious choice, but then Ian wonders if there isn’t some unwritten guideline about not letting your sister be eaten by monsters (even if she does generally refer to you as “Toady”).  Ages 5 – 7
