I Always, ALWAYS Get My Way
Ages 3 - 5. From carefully aimed pouts and shifting blame to the threat of an all-out tantrum, this laugh-out-loud story for kids and adults focuses on the clever antics, advantage-taking, limit-testing, and childhood shenanigans of three-year-old Emmy. When Emmy spills juice and her dad's pants get 'orange-hosed', she takes refuge behind Mom's knee. Expecting a reprimand, Emmy is surprised when Mom tells Dad, 'Now, sweetheart, you should let it be. After all ...she's only three'. Once Emmy discovers that she's too young to be punished, she constantly wrangles her way out of trouble by proclaiming, 'I'm only three!' and pulls a handy weapon from her arsenal of manipulative manoeuvres. With hilarious, rhyming text and energetic ink and watercolour illustrations that capture Emmy's expressions, from angelic to livid, readers discover that Emmy can't get away with her outrageous behaviour forever and that her actions do eventually have consequences.
