From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2 This story with the classic theme of the troublesome little brother who ``has it made'' will strike a familiar chord with many children. The story is told through the eyes of the older brother, and this first-person narration, although not without flaw, is handled well. A few problems arise when the narration slows the action down in wordiness. The phrase, ``Oh, brother!'' is repeated often and effectively, and young children will be able to understand and enjoy this humorous double meaning. Other funny details, such as big brother Aaron's stories intended to scare Benji, will also tickle readers. Brewster's colorful and detailed illustrations will endear this book to children. Lakin tells a satisfying tale of sibling rivalry without sugar-coating the subject, allowing honest feelings of love and protection to surface above resentment and jealousy at the conclusion. A humorous and believable story. Lee Bock, Brown County Public Libraries, Green Bay, Wis.

From Publishers Weekly:

Sibling rivalry has been the subject of notable contemporary picture books, including Judith Viorst's I'll Fix Anthony and Judy Blume's The Pain and the Great One. Oh, Brother!, a sequel to Don't Touch My Room, is in the same category. Lakin tells the story through the eyes of older brother Aaron, who has many gripes. He has all the responsibilities; Benji is a crybaby and gets everything he wants. Mom and Dad, who are referred to only as "they," come through with something special for Aaron. After trying to terrorize his younger brother, Aaron now comforts and reassures Benji. Brewster's illustrations include an enviable new bedroom for the boys, with plant and dinosaur wallpaper, and a likable cast of characters. Ages 48.
