When Aaron finished this book, the smile on his face made him look like he'd gotten away with something. "I think one kid, ME, was just right," says Jonathan, the narrator. He's angry with his parents, his Grandma and Poppop, his cousins—the world. He expresses his disgust with lots of "Grrrr"-ing and nearly-naughty name-calling. It's not until he joins the Big Brother Club that he sees the positive side. Danziger gives kids permission to "Grrr," then, keeping her toe right on the line between naughty and nice, she leaves them smiling.

Reviewed by KAY MARNER, a mother by birth and adoption. She works for the public library in Ames, Iowa.
