Mildew on the Wall Cover

At one time, fifth grader Millie had a lovely bedroom—much larger than those of her friends—but during the last few years, she has created apparent chaos in it. It has become a room that defines her identity. To the outside world, it is a mess; piles of clothing, old toys, forgotten books, discarded candy wrappers, and dried out pens and pencils cover the floor. Old posters are falling off the walls, along with a two-year-old calendar. Dusty dolls sit on a dusty shelf. Her sheets and blankets have drifted to the floor. Millie simply cannot bring herself to clean her room, no matter how much her mother insists.

Finally, her allowance is cut off until the room is cleaned. But rather than capitulate, Millie begins to run secret guided tours of her room for the pre-teens in her neighborhood for fifty cents a head. Her first tours are advertised by word of mouth by the kids. Only her best friends had seen her room before, but already it is famous.

Don't miss the sequel to this book, Spiders on the Ceiling.
