Matthew is thrilled that he is getting his VERY OWN bedroom and won’t have to share any more. But then Mom’s relatives come to stay. How will he ever get his room back?
Will Matthew ever get some peace in his own room?Not a chance if his relatives have anything to say about it!
Matthew’s family has a brand-new trailer, which includes a brand-new room for Matthew — a room of his own! Or so his mother says…
Sure enough, before he knows it, the relatives start knocking and his room soon becomes a hotel for cousins and aunts and uncles and dogs. Fed up, and sleeping underneath the trailer (which is the only place to get some privacy!) Matthew hatches a plan to get these guests OUT of his room, once and for all!
Robert Munsch created this story after having a chat with a young boy in Fort McMurray, Alberta. The result? A funny romp of a story that will satisfy any Robert Munsch fan, especially those that have had to share their room when company comes!
