From Barnes & NoblePoor D. W. -- not only is she tortured on a daily basis by her older brother, Arthur, but now she can't get her own library card. First, she has to be able to write her full name. If Tommy and Timmy Tibble can do it, why can't she? Spelling her full name -- Dora Winifred Read -- is no small task. "Why didn't you name me something easy, like 'A'?" she asks. She finally succeeds and checks out her first book. But Tommy and Timmy warn her that if she damages the old and tattered book, they'll take her card away forever? What will she do?
Marc Brown created the ultimate little sister with D. W., and all her adventures will ring familiar to youngsters. This life-altering moment is written with ease and humor. When D. W. gets home, she barely allows herself to hold the book, and when she does it's with oven mitts. Brown's trademark understanding of young minds and their constant humor will amuse and entertain readers.
