Someone worse than the worst? Impossible. Well, the Worst discovers that he's met his match when his nephew Warren and his dog come for the weekend. "A reliable premise, developed with Stevenson's usual wit and skill as a cartoonist and raconteur."--Kirkus Reviews.

Ages 5-8. Has the worst person in the world finally met his match? Fans of Stevenson's endearing curmudgeon and his timid dog, Daisy, get a chance to find out in the latest peek at life with a grouch. As usual, much of the delightful comedy comes from the freewheeling illustrations. The pen-and-ink sketches tinted with watercolor show the chaos when the Worst's obstreperous grand-nephew Warren and his huge dog, Arnold, come to stay. It takes only a moment for bratty Warren to gain the upper hand, his antics eventually driving the Worst up to the attic for a little peace and quiet. But when the Worst emerges, he can't find Daisy, and that's when we're reminded that the Worst is one crabby grouch who doesn't really have a heart of stone. Ill-behaved Warren we love to hate; grumpy Worst we love to love. Stephanie Zvirin
