Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-4-- Maggie is a spoiled younger sister who often makes her brother Harry say, "I hate my sister Maggie." When her pestering ruins an outing, or she rearranges his trains, kills his science experiment, or demands the one rose from his birthday cake, Harry objects. Then his mother tells Harry about her surprise--a new sibling is on the way; while Maggie will no longer be the youngest, Harry will still be the oldest. Black-and-white drawings throughout portray Harry and Maggie as normal siblings to whom most readers can relate. The adults, however, need to learn some parenting skills to help the children work together rather than create a large rift between them by always protecting Maggie at Harry's expense. Their inept handling of normal situations is so obvious that it may be intended to serve as a lesson. This purpose aside, the story can reassure children that there are others in the world with spoiled siblings. --Nancy A. Gifford, Schenectady County Public Library, NYSUHR 09-FEB-90,12:17

Format: Hardcover
I've been in a nostalgic mood, and I came across something that reminded me of this book. It was a favorite of mine as a kid. Harry is an older brother, and his little sister, Maggie, is constantly getting on his nerves. He talks about the various ways Maggie irritates him (things that any sibling can identify with at one time or another) and how much he'd like to get rid of her (in humorous ways, as I remember), but when his mother tells him that she is going to have another baby and that there will be changes in their household, Harry begins to look at the situation from a new perspective. There is another book by the same author told from Maggie's perspective called I Hate My Brother Harry.
