Banished to her room for hitting her brother, Patty Jane plots the rest of her life—which might just involve never leaving her room again. ‘The deadpan humor of the authors is perfectly suited to Roz Chast’s wonderfully waggish illustrations. Not only do her pictures faithfully mirror the antics of the story, they also expand on the jokes, adding hilarious details and prankish asides.’ —NYT. ‘[A] standout.…Chast gets the tone just right: childlike but heartfelt.’—SLJ.

Patty Jane Pepper is being unjustly punished. Her parents claim that she punched her brother Theodore. In fact, she only touched him--hard. And she didn't call him a dumbbell, either. She just called him a dumb head. Nonetheless, she's been sent to her room. So Patty Jane decides to punish her parents back. She'll stay in her room--forever. She'll stay up really, really, really late (so that when she goes to bed it will be the next day), speak in a code that only she understands, and never, ever eat again. Unless, of course, there's something good for dinner. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0060212934
