Legendary in the field of children's literature, as an editor as well as the author of more than seventy picture books, Charlotte Zolotow has a unique understanding of both childhood and children.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2 Older brother John thinks little Timmy is a real pest because Timmy follows him everywhere and bellows when he is left out of John's activities. But when a new boy moves on the street, Timmy ignores John because he is completely absorbed in his play with Jake. John begins to feel left out himself, and he invites the boys to come and hear him play his saxophone. The familiar situation of a lonely, younger child idolizing an older sibling is appealingly handled. John gets a gentle comeuppance when he feels neglected and shows his love for Timmy by urging the boys to join him. And Timmy begins to look outside the family for satisfying activity. For some unknown reason, however, Timmy, who appears to be at least three or even four, and has a long attention span, can only communicate in simple words or phrases that he repeats: ``Socks, socks'' or ``wash face, wash face.'' It is not clear whether or not Timmy is learning disabled. His age-mate Jake speaks normally. The four-color illustrations are expressive and crisply drawn but muted in tone. They complement the low-key, sympathetic text well. A weedy John with floppy black hair is shown being pursued by a button-eyed Timmy, who delights in imitating his older brother's every action. The background is pleasantly homey and middle class, with lots of interesting details of toys, sports equipment, record albums, and so forth.
