Jason Birchall can't wait for Valentine's Day. His parents are going away for the weekend, and Grandma is coming! Jason has big plans. Will he be able to sneak some of his mother's yummy valentine chocolates? Can he trick Grandma into allowing him to change his bedtime?

Strange things happen in the Cul-de-sac when Jason pigs out on gooey chocolates and stays up late for a scary show!

Jason takes advantage of his parents' absence to sneak forbidden chocolates behind his babysitting grandmother's back, but a Bible verse and a talk with God help him understand the importance of good behavior.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-Thinly veiled Sunday school lessons, complete with scripture verses, didacticism, and a proselytizing style. In Mystery, Dunkum's basketball, signed by Christian ballplayer David Robinson, disappears. Through a series of puzzles and codes, Dunkum, who attends church alone because his parents aren't Christian, finds his ball. Jason, the main character in No Grown-ups, has Attention Deficit Disorder and breaks his parents' house rules while they are away for the weekend. While both titles are poorly written and shallow in plot and characterization, No Grown-Ups is also inaccurate in presentation. Medicating ADD children is highly controversial and there is no scientific proof that chocolate and sugar make them hyperactive. It is a disservice to these youngsters to perpetuate such misconceptions. Unnecessary purchases.-Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA
