Little Martin is a bad boy. He uses the most expressive phrases: "No," "More," "Mine," and "Don't touch!" He knows just what to do with a tube of lipstick and how to stick his finger in the faucet when the water is on. Packed with punch lines, this easy-to-read book guarantees guffaws at the bad behavior of the rascally tot. Kids and adults will love Barbara Baker's naughty antihero and Vera Rosenberry's deliciously wicked accompanying pictures. Learning to read was never more fun!
