Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Mr. Worst, a disagreeable old gent, lives in a run-down house with only his dog, Daisy, for company. One day he is notified that his great-nephew Warren will be delivered for a weekend visit. When Warren, a bratty kid, is dropped off with his large dog, Arnold, nephew and uncle take an immediate dislike to one another. The boy brings in neighborhood children who party and destroy things while Uncle Worst hides in the attic and Daisy flees. Later, Warren begrudgingly cleans up while the man looks for his pet. Finally, the boy offers Arnold's searching abilities, and he quickly finds her. Warren is amazed to see some emotion out of his uncle, and the two affect a truce by the time his parents return. The war between these two Worsts is predictable and almost petty, but the involvement of the canines adds a touch of redemption to the story. The cartoon drawings are humorous, and while this twisted adventure might not attract new readers to Stevenson's books, fans will certainly enjoy it.-Nancy A. Gifford, Schenectady County Public Library, NY
Stephanie Zvirin
Has the worst person in the world finally met his match? Fans of Stevenson's endearing curmudgeon and his timid dog, Daisy, get a chance to find out in the latest peek at life with a grouch. As usual, much of the delightful comedy comes from the freewheeling illustrations. The pen-and-ink sketches tinted with watercolor show the chaos when the Worst's obstreperous grand-nephew Warren and his huge dog, Arnold, come to stay. It takes only a moment for bratty Warren to gain the upper hand, his antics eventually driving the Worst up to the attic for a little peace and quiet. But when the Worst emerges, he can't find Daisy, and that's when we're reminded that the Worst is one crabby grouch who doesn't really have a heart of stone. Ill-behaved Warren we love to hate; grumpy Worst we love to love.
