When I first received That's (Not) Mine! in the mail last month, I tore into the package and immediately had to read it.  The delightful combination of illustrations and fun words to say made me want to read it aloud! (onomatopoeia, anyone?)  I tore through the book the first time, then devoured it again paired with delicious gelato.  My third read through of the book was to my 9 year old who gave it his stamp of approval with plenty of giggles.

I'm looking forward to sharing this book with students at my school!  I know they too will appreciate the pictures and the story...because I think we can ALL identify with the problems experienced in this story.  

While perusing the book jacket, I also learned that the author and illustrator were husband and wife!  What a super talented couple.!  Read more about both of them below.  Also, keep on reading because there's a giveaway at the end!  (I KNOW you want your own copy of this book!)
