Okie-Dokie, Artichokie!

"Hey, if I get too loud or something, you can just bang on the ceiling and let me know," Marklee says to his new downstairs neighbor, Artichoke. But he never thought that someone could be so sensitive! No matter what Marklee does, from watching TV to talking on the phone, Artichoke bangs on the ceiling. And then he won't answer his door when Marklee tries to talk to him about it. "How rude!" thinks Marklee. But as holiday time approaches, Marklee decides to give him a second chance, and is surprised to discover that tall Artichoke has been bumping his head on the ceiling all along! With sweetness and a touch of suspense, Grace Lin shows how a little misunderstanding can be solved by simple communication.
