Review: It Wasn't My Fault by Helen Lester/ Illustrated by Lynn Munsinger
When accidents happen to Murdley Gurdson, they are usually his own fault, but when a bird lays an egg on Murdley's head one day, he tries hard to find someone else to blame.
Having young kids around, they always want to say that something is not their fault. The character Murdley is always having things happen to him that are usually his fault. One day when a large egg hits his head, he sets out to find out whose fault it is. Hilarity ensues and the characters involved are truly funny. This is an adorable little book.
Kids will relate to goofy things happening in the book and find them to be a laugh out loud adventure of discovery. I loved everything about this book including its cartoonish, over-the-top characters.
The read was easy for kids that are learning to read.
This is a 5 star-not-my-fault book for sure!
