Sylvia Firth - Children's Literature
William and his little sister Jane are the main characters in this new title of the "I am Reading" series. Though William is the oldest, his sister is an expert in getting her big brother to do everything she wishes. When she wants to go for a walk and William refuses to take her, she cleverly forces the issue by crying so loudly the rest of the family comes running to see what the trouble might be. When Jane's favorite toy, a porcupine named Sophie, is missing and cannot be found anywhere, she forces William to become Sophie. Finally, William skillfully turns the tables on Jane. Children will enjoy the humor and quickly identify with these characters. The boldly colored drawings are not detailed but do capture the essence of the story. Those needing to add more books for beginning readers will find this a satisfactory choice. 2006, Kingfisher Books, Ages 6 to 9.

Gr 1-2-Beginning readers will enjoy the clear writing and clever plotting in these stories narrated by William about him and his younger sister. In the first chapter, Jane proves that while she may be smaller, she is stronger. Next, William joins the family in a search for Jane's lost doll, and to appease her he pretends to be a doll and allows her to feed him, comb his hair, and put him down for a nap. As he stretches out on the couch, the lost toy is found. Finally, Jane is frustrated because William needs a bath and none of the adults will make him take one. Readers may chuckle as Jane induces him to get into the tub, and compare this chapter to a scenario in Jean Van Leeuwen's Amanda Pig and Her Brother Oliver (Puffin, 1994). Denton's cheerful andexpressive illustrations perfectly capture the relationship between these characters. William may be every girl's dream of a big brother rather than a realistic sibling, but fans of family stories such as Stephen Krensky's Lionel and Louise (Puffin, 1997) will feel right at home with him.-Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MI Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
