Up To Something by Katrina McKelvey and Kirrili Lonergan - OPTIONAL

Up To Something by Katrina McKelvey, illustrated by Kirrili Lonergan.  PICTURE BOOK.  EK (Exisle), 2019.  $18. 9781925335705



Billy is excited to help his Dad build a Soap Box Derby car for the race, but when he tries to help, Dad is just doing everything on his own – for him instead of with him.  Since his dad is ignoring him, he decides to make his own.

The story is a good lesson, but the lesson is really for adults, not kids.  The illustrations are uninspiring and do not draw the reader into the story.
