My Last Chance Brother

A Picture Book by

In this wickedly funny sibling book, a boy named Max fantasizes about his older brother turning into the worst thing he can think of-a bug. The narrator recalls the many ways Gordon ruined his birthday, from giving him a noogie first thing in the morning to dropping his toothbrush in the toilet just before bedtime. In alternating scenes, Max imagines the annoying Gordon as "Bug Boy." Gordon eventually saves the day by protecting his younger sibling from a spider on the wall. But in the midst of this heartwarming scene, observant readers will see that Max's birthday wish is coming true after all, and Gordon is sprouting wings! Told in an authentically childlike voice and shown in devilishly amusing illustrations, this book captures the love-hate relationship between siblings.
