A great story about dealing with some frustrating things that sometimes take place at home. Maggie has an incredible imagination and the way she sees her world is very unique and lots of fun! The art is beautiful but the story and its heartfelt message were my favorite parts. =)

My kids enjoyed the story and read it over and over. The art is really great. Hope the next Maggie book comes out soon.

Beautiful illustrations, darling and engaging. I admit I purchased this, and the other 2 Maggie books because they were .99 - they are worth much more! (And both my 6 year old and 16 year old loved them, as did I.) And if you have a daughter who has a brother she will REALLY love it.

My 6 year old and 4 year old daughters really liked the story (and getting their own book on mommy's Nook). My six year old could read it herself, and the story was delightful.

My daughter (3 years old) and I love this series. We have purchased all of them. Highly recommended. Simple but entertaining words. The font used for the words are fun too! The pictures look like watercolors on fine (i.e. expensive) fiber paper with cgi pictures of maggie, her family and pets. There is no read to me option or moving pictures. I would love the author to add a read to me option, but it is not necessary to enjoy to enjoy the book. Important lessons about sharing are included. This is meant for younger children and early readers. A very well written and fun to read book. We recommend checking out this series! -AvidReader

Very cute with great illustrations. My special needs daughter comprehended it accurately even though she missed a few words. It would be especially enjoyable for girls with younger brothers.

I was a primary grade teacher and now tutoring young children. The Maggie series is fantastic; the children laugh during the stories, and can't wait to read the next one. Thank you!!

My 6 year old daughter loved reading this book to me! It was very enjoyable and an easy read for her. She loved that in the end the monkey was a brother! That made it that much better and we got a good laugh about her own brother!

I read it to one of girls and we both were laughing. Its so much more funnier to us because we actually have a monkey of our own. My youngest son is just the same but the love they have for each other is unconditional. Getting the rest of the collection too!! Wonderfully written and great illustration

I love this book!! It helps big sisters think about everything that brothers can do to annoy you,but instead, helps you realize that yes, they are a pain, but at the end of the day hes your brother and you HAVE to love him
