Synopsis: Believing his kid brother, Charles, to be nothing more than a pest, Yorick Bede finds himself dependent on Charles when he invents a potion that reduces him to the size of a peanut. Children's BOMC.

Review: William Steig, the creator of 26 children's books, including Sylvester and the Magic Pebble and The Amazing Bone, has struck again with an entertaining and informative book. Both the writer and illustrator, Steig spins a yarn that focuses on two brothers. The older boy, Yorick, is told one day by his alchemist father not to venture into the laboratory. Yorick, of course, does just that as soon as his father leaves and mixes a potion that transforms him into a toy-sized boy. His brother, Charles, is thereby transformed into the larger of the two, forcing the siblings to deal with role reversal, brotherhood, disobedience, and a host of other matters.
