           By Cary Fagan
           Illustrated by: Luc Melanson
           House of Anansi Press, 2010
           $18.95 Cdn.
           $17.95 US.
           
           This is a captivating children’s
           picture book about three brothers. The
           author eloquently illustrates the
           dynamics of younger and older brothers
           within families in this wonderful book.
          
           Fagan gives a true portrayal of what it
           is like to be the youngest of three
           brothers. In this story, although the
           older brothers can be mean, the youngest
           is usually in on the fun and delights in
           the complicated dynamics that surrounds
           him.
          
           Luc Melanson illustrates the story
           using retro-style colours and dyes. They
           are fun and colourful, and will engage
           the young reader right into the story.
          
           When I read the story to my nephew, he
           was mesmerized by the story. He was
           finally able to relate to the sibling
           rivalry that he was feeling as the
           youngest of three brothers in this
           family.
          
           Parents and educators can use this book
           to help children deal with sibling
           rivalry, family dynamics and true
           brotherly friendship. 

 

           Rating: 3 stars
