Synopsis: Six year old Karen Brewer wishes she had a pet of her own. When she goes to her father's big house during the weekend, she is angry that Emily Michelle is getting all the attention because she has been crying a lot and nobody knows why. Karen and Andrew don't like the fact that they are there only for the weekend, and nobody is paying any attention to them, because Emily is now the youngest in the family and she is getting all the attention. Even Kristy couldn't spend any time with Karen because she had to babysit Emily and try to calm her down. Karen doesn't like having a little sister like Emily.

Things don't go any better the next morning when everyone has to take Emily to the doctor, and Karen gets moody that nobody is paying any attention to her. When everyone leaves, Karen feels alone and wishes she could have a pet of her own. After playing with Hannie and her pet cat Pat, the family returns from the doctor and Elizabeth (Karen's stepmother) tells her that Emily would have to have an appointment to have tubes fixed in her ears for her infection, which would take place two weekends from then. Karen gets really angry at this because her next visit to her father's is two weekends from now, and she feels that everyone will ignore her next time too and spend all the time at the hospital with Emily. She tries to get everyone's attention in the big house, but everyone keeps fussing over Emily.

Karen feels sad and goes back to her mother's house. There, she asks them if she could get a pet of her own, and they tell her that she can get a small pet. After putting some thought into it, Karen decides to get a parrot, when she suddenly sees a small bird lying on the ground. She feels sorry for it and decides to take care of it and keep it as her pet, and her parents agree.

My girls both have read a few books from this series. They were first very interested in it, but only kept their interest for about 2-3 books in the series.

Format: Paperback
This book shows you how you can be kind to your little brother or sister. It's a very good story about Karen's family adopting a little sister. If you like the other Karen books, you should like this book.
