Everyone needs thingamajigs, and four-year-old Janet means to keep, her thingamajigs to herself. Each day Janet carefully chooses three little thingamajigs. And each day she neatly wraps them in a paper bag and puts them in her crib — safe from her brother Jimmy's meddling hands. But when the bags fill Janet's crib, Mother is at her wit's end until she saves the day by giving the twins a big surprise that makes Janet's paper-bag collection a thingamajig of the past. In this delightful new Jimmy and Janet story, Newbery medalist Beverly Cleary vividly recreates the pride a child takes in growing up. DyAnne DiSalvo-Ryan's appealing, softly colored illustrations make this a true-to-life classic that is sure to find a place in every child's heart.
