Squish! Game On!

Game on! by Jennifer L. Holm & Matthew Holm — I could have read this for Geek Out too, but since the title was Game On, I couldn't resist.   Squish has some problems resisting the draw of a new video game, with some rather humbling consequences. Why haven't I read Squish before? He's lots of fun!
