A little brother imagines how great life will be once he’s bigger than his older brother in this saucy classic on sibling rivalry keenly captured by master storyteller Judith Viorst.
Mother says deep down in his heart Anthony loves me. Anthony says deep down in his heart he thinks I stink
Anthony’s younger brother puts up with a lot. Anthony won’t read to him. Anthony is always threating to clobber him. Anthony thinks he stinks. There’s nothing he can do now…but just wait until he’s six! Then he’ll fix Anthony! Judith Viorst’s funny, classic sibling rivalry story is as timeless as ever.
