Speaker, bestselling author, and self-proclaimed troublemaker Ajayi Jones’ debut picture book follows a child learning what it means to make good trouble.

When Luvvie and her older sister, Kami, who are of Nigerian descent, are left home alone, Luvvie decides to have a snack before dinner. Disappointed to find sandwiches in the fridge, Luvvie tries to convince Kami to help her make jollof rice to surprise their mother. Kami declines. Undeterred, Luvvie proceeds to make a mess prepping ingredients that seem to land everywhere except the pot. Ready to begin cooking, Luvvie calls Kami, who is stunned by the huge mess in the kitchen. Though Kami offers to clean up after she finishes her own project, Luvvie once again defies her older sister, creating—if possible—an even bigger mess. When Mom returns, she’s shocked. Is Luvvie in “BIG TROUBLE”? Not quite—Mom understands that Luvvie just wanted to help, and she tells the girl that later they’ll brainstorm ways to make good trouble (which, per the backmatter, “makes the world a better place”). This adorable tale will resonate with children who recognize feelings of impatience, being too small, and wanting to be helpful. The playful and brightly colored illustrations match the book’s cheerful mood. Ideal for storytime, this one will also help kids develop social-emotional skills. (This book was reviewed digitally.)

A lighthearted tale perfect for setting little ones on the path to good trouble. (note about jollof rice) (Picture book. 5-8)

A few parts are helpful. I think it would be far better for those who are younger than me

nonfiction (standing up for your principles and your worth in the workplace and beyond)

I don't often give out all five stars, but this book is so necessary and true! Even if you don't work, even if you don't think you have principles, everyone should read this. Luvvie's audio is fantastic too--it is an easy book to listen to and one that you'll want to own.
