Who wants a baby in the family? Definitely not Hank Zipzer! Hank already has a super smart little sister who is more than enough for any big brother to put up with. But Hank's mom is pregnant, so he is going have to get used to the idea. Hank's brain might not be the zippiest when it comes to math and reading, but it is wildly creative in coming up with a unique plan for him to be able to "practice" being a big brother. At the pet store, he looks for a baby animal to hang out with for a week or so. "I'd like to see an animal in baby size, please. I'm looking for something that's like a baby. I'd like it to be annoying and spit up occasionally." Who would believe that Rosa, the Mexican red-knee tarantula, is just perfect for teaching Hank about the trials, tribulations, and even fun of having a brand new baby in the family. From the "Hank Zipzer, The World's Greatest Underachiever" series, this book stands alone as a laugh-out-loud delight. Reviewer: Anita Barnes Lowen
