Benjamin Butters has a habit of dropping things, his breakfast, his goldfish, raw eggs, milk, and when his parents bring home his new baby-sister they hold their breath as Benjamin takes her in his arms

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-- Poor Benjamin Butters is always dropping things--cats, eggs, buttered-side-down toast. Sent to visit his grandparents' farm while his parents await a new baby, his clumsiness continues--chickens, the pig, the cow, and the duck join his list of victims. At last the call comes; a baby sister has arrived. "Can I hold her?," Benjamin asks. As a roomful of relatives collectively holds their breath, he picks up Baby Butters--and she smiles at him, feeling safe. Watercolor illustrations filled with charmingly goofy-looking people complement the mildly humorous story. As new-sibling books go, though, it's not a standout. Kevin Henke's Julius, the Baby of the World (1990) and Too Big (1983 , both Greenwillow) by Holly Keller are better purchases. --Lucy Young Clem, Evansville Vanderburgh County Public Library, IN

From Kirkus Reviews:

Benjamin Butters drops everything--balls, his toast, his goldfish, the eggs he's collecting, etc. But when (to everyone's consternation) ``Mom'' lets him hold his new baby sister, she's perfectly safe. This new British illustrator has a witty way with a pen, but the idea is overextended and the outcome not well developed. Still, kids may enjoy Benjamin's many comic mishaps, rather mercilessly caricatured in the lively illustrations. (Picture book. 4-8) -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
