Right on topic! You have illustrated such an important truth. The "slips" that are avoided in life are seldom recognized. Great falls are sensationalized for all to know about. But ... the spills of life that were prevented before they happened often go unnoticed. Great story. Love the title.

This is very good for the topic. The characters are fun -- especially Little Mess -- and the lesson is illustrated very well.

Oh grumble, grumble...
I was rooting for Little Mess. His aspirations were so charming. Fun and creative. This is a winner!
A clever idea--to personify Little Mess and clean him up. I enjoyed this fun read.

A perfect illustration of the saying, and a delightful read. I love the POV and the twist near the end, averting calamity.

Cute and fun. Little mess sounds a bit devious to me :)
A fun read. Where would we be without those who write for children, and teach them such important lessons while engaging their attention?

Interestign POV!
I didn't know those things had a mind of their own! NO wonder they seem to grow when you're not looking!

Karen, this is one of the most creative pieces I've read in a long time! What a cute MC! Little Mess...at first I thought 'he' was one of my children that got in there! Haha! EC was certainly right for this one! Congratulations!
