A Messy Mess: A Toy Ogre Is Born is written by Candie and illustrated by Hilbert Bermejo. A creative, adventurous, fictional book created for children to enjoy. The design, layout, and formatting for this book is of a five star nature. The pictures are very vibrant, colorful, and expressive. The story plot is simple but humorous.

This is the story of twins, a boy and a girl, who by day are ordinary kids, playing with their toys, games, and other belongings. But when night falls and the nightly routine is all done and bed time arrives, they defend their mom from a Toy Ogre and become Super Heroes fighting against clutter.

A Messy Mess: A Toy Ogre is a very creative and imaginative story. Parents and children can share their fondness for this book together. I loved this story. What mom out there hasn't felt as though the toys came alive and attacked her as she looks at the mess at the end of the day. Who wouldn't want to have two super heroes come to your rescue to fight clutter with organization super powers! A fantastic story.

This amazing story can be used as a fun bedtime story, a humorous tale to mix up the day, or just to read in general. This book would be great for a parent or guardian to use as a reenactment exercise with young children. It would teach them the use of imagination and also to be organized.
