This is an excellent book. In this book, Elisa is back on the scene. This time, with a new addition to the family-her little brother, Marshall. Elisa loses her glasses, with the help of her neighbor's, parent's, and even Russell, she creates a search party. but it's little Marshall who helps Elisa actually find them. Are all left handed people important, or is it people with eyeglasses? Neither. It's people like Elisa and Russell that write books about their mistakes. Did you ever try to help your brother and end up hurting him? Well ding ding ding ding ding. we have a winner. It's Elisa Michaels. She tries to help Russell catch up on his math. What can a little mis-heard word do? A lot of damage. So can bubble baths. But Elisa is a good sister to Marshall, and that's what matters, right? She tries to help Russell, she really does. But all she can do is another problem after another. But, wait! She actually HELPED Russell win a contest! Yes, it's true. Elisa is a great sister, anyone would be jealous of her if you had her as your sister. No is NOT an acceptable answer. In the end, Russell and Elisa become proud of each other, in the most fine ways. Read this book, you will not regret it. The only part I didn't like was the around the end. One page Elisa was in kindergarten-just starting it-, and the next page she's suddenly nearing the end of it. I hate that she was just doing unmentioned things in this book. Besides that, this book is great and I HIGHLY recomend it.
When I read the first chapter of the book,I screamed with laughter.Russell had to catch up with his math and Elisa wanted to help so she took a ketchup bottle and really ketchup his math.Ha! Ha! Ha! What a funny book! The second chapter was funny too.Well,I can't blame Elisa for all that.However,she is only five years old.Oh,here's another joke.Elisa thinks that we must say that instead of one year old,we should say one year young.Maybe she thought that if we called a baby one year old,that means we think that the baby is OLD! And if we called a baby one year young,that means the baby is young.This is a really comical book.It is one of my favourite comical books.
