In spite of their promises to clean up after themselves, they conveniently 'forget' to do it. Unfortunately, their parents know how to find them, because the friends carry their mobile phones...

"I find Jean-Paul a funny, impulsive kid, who keeps creating a mess 'by accident' and then 'forgets' to clean it up, until there is no escape from a bunch of angry parents. He is inclined to exaggerate everything, which seems irresistably funny to the kids I have read this book to."
