Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Candice Ransom
Bradley Harris Pinkerton has all the answers when it comes to bugging big sisters. He begins his step-by-step program by declaring: "It's your job to drive your sister crazy. You might as well do it right." Daring escapades take place in big sister habitats like the bathroom and her bedroom. A toy snake is coiled strategically on a bath towel, teddy bears are propped on ceiling fan blades, an alarm clock is hidden in her underwear drawer (with a warning not to touch any underpants), chewing gum is stuck to the light switch, and phone conversations are interrupted with mysterious noises. Life is rough for Bradley's sister, Abby, who endures endless pranks, yet falls for his insincere note of apology, delivered hours before her hidden alarm clock goes off at 3:00 a.m. Written in a humorous how-to style, this easy reader gives valuable advice to little brothers (or little sisters) on one-upping older siblings. Rankin's colorful spot illustrations and plenty of white space break up blocks of text. The little brother is wonderfully fiendish and his purple-obsessed sister is hilariously outraged. A winner for beginning readers. Reviewer: Candice Ransom

    Bradley Harris Pinkerton has an older sister named Abby. Bradley loves driving Abby crazy. He feels it's a brother's job to drive his sister crazy. That is why Bradley was nice enough to create this step-by-step guide on how it's done. He even gives brothers a fair warning not to let their sisters read this book! <BR/><BR/>HOW TO DRIVE YOUR SISTER CRAZY is a really fun and easy read. The story flows and is perfect for a child who is well on their way to reading but still needs a little help. The pictures really enhance the story. Seeing Bradley sneaking around every corner and seeing Abby's reactions to what Bradley does just makes you laugh. <BR/><BR/>The characters are very easy to relate to, whether you're a Bradley, one who would get enjoyment out of driving their sibling crazy, or an Abby, one who has a sibling who is driving them crazy. There is something for everyone with a sibling in this story. All the Abby's who manage to get hold of this book will know what to look out for. All the Bradley's will find his antics hysterical and might even gain a few tips. I know my sister will. <BR/><BR/>Be sure to add this adorable book to your collection.
