About the Author:

Jane Cutler is the author of a popular series of chapter books about Jason and Edward Fraser, which includes the titles No Dogs Allowed, Rats!, and ’Gator Aid. She has also written novels for older readers such as The Song of the Molimo and My Wartime Summers. She lives in San Francisco, California.

Susannah Ryan has illustrated many books for children, including Coming to America. She lives in Wisconsin.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Like many newly upstaged children, Darcy isn't much interested in her baby sibling, for the familiar reasons: his smell, his attention-grabbing ways. But she has an unusual ally: a grandmother who sums up her own dislike for babies in similar terms. After an outing when they swing and enjoy other activities unsuited to babies, Darcy can begin to imagine a time when she won't mind--might even like--her new brother. Ryan's pictures add some gleeful mischief, especially in the park scenes; and while Gran is given to understatement, there's reassurance in her gestures and expressions. But the layout flounders when an entire dialogue is illustrated with the two sitting silently; and though the sentiments are good-hearted, the repetitive phrasing feels forced. In a crowded field, with such treats as Henkes's Julius, Baby of the World available, an acceptable additional offering. (Picture book. 3-7) -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP.
