Stephanie Blake was the brains behind Poo Bum and now she has a new book, this one for kids with new siblings. Simon is a young rabbit whose little brother has been home from hospital for three. whole. days. The cute illustrations have shades of Miffy styling about them, though maybe all cute rabbits have shades of Miffy. The bright text and smart use of typographic devises gets the emphasis of the speech just right. Simon just can’t believe he has to be quite because of the Stupid Baby. But in the night when the big bad wolves come, Simon realises that he needs to protect his little brother…and maybe get some company out of it himself.
A cute story about being a big brother, paperback,$17.
