The Lovereading4Kids comment

One of our Books of the Year 2014 - September 2014 Book of the Month Best-selling Lauren Child, the creator of Charlie and Lola, captures perfectly the always difficult and sometimes terrible moment when a new sibling arrives. Elmore Green is used to being an only child. He likes being an only child because everything around him is for him alone. He can choose the TV channel to watch, he can leave his toys out and no one will mess them up and, best of all, his parents think he is the cleverest and funniest small person around. But then one day a new small person arrives….Elmore Green does not like that at all! How Elmore Green learns to love the new small person is full of emotional truths all of which are brilliantly captures in the witty text and stunning illustrations.
