Neat Freaks by John Arvai III is an illustrated story in rhyme. It tells what happens when children go to bed at night and don’t clean up after themselves. As this story explains, the Neat Freaks that live in the couch cushions come out to play. They will play with all the toys, racing in the cars and having a great time with all the toys lying around. The trouble is, after they have been playing for a while, they become hungry. And when they get hungry, you wouldn’t believe what they eat! Suffice it to say that when the children wake up in the morning, all their toys are gone.
This is a great way of telling children to tidy up before they go to bed or they may have to face the consequences – which is losing all their toys. If I was a child, this story would have me leaving my room spick and span every night without fail! The thing about this story is that although the Neat Freaks are very naughty, they also have a likable quality about them, and I don’t think a child would feel angry with them but would laugh with and at them. The idea that they are playing and having fun with their toys is quite funny. Loveable rogues, really. The illustrations are simple yet colorful and draw the eye, and the rhyming is fun in telling the tale. This cute story will have children checking the couches every morning for the Neat Freaks, without a doubt.
