The Troublemaker by Lauren Castillo - OPTIONAL

Castillo, Lauren. The Troublemaker, PICTURE BOOK. Clarion Books, 2014. $16.99. Content: G. 

Someone is stealing things from the family. Everyone thinks it is the little boy, but he insists that, this time, it wasn’t him. The little boy saves the day when he finds the troublemaker, who turns out to be a surprise for everyone. This was a tedious book to get through. I had an issue with the mismatched tenses in the story (first past tense, then present, then past again).  I wanted to like it because some of the illustrations were very distinctive, but it was somewhat anticlimactic and the language needed to be more descriptive.
