About this title

Synopsis:

Seven-year-old Brandon's attempt to take care of his two-year-old sister Gina results in one disaster after another.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-- Walter and Cummings use precise characterization and sharp attention to detail to bring freshness to the familiar situation of a young black boy who has to deal with a younger sister in the throes of the terrible twos. Brandon agrees to help his mother by watching Gina, although he'd rather do anything else--even vacuum. It's truly a tough job--she runs off to try on her mother's make-up, knocks over his toy garage, and spills her milk. After lunch, he can't find her. His anger dissipates into fear as he and his mother search the house and, when they find her napping on the floor beside her bed, his relief helps him to put his problems with Gina into perspective. What lifts this depiction of an everyday situation out of the commonplace is the immediacy with which Walter and Cummings convey Brandon's many conflicting emotions--pride, selfishness, reluctant amusement, anger, worry, love--in both language and image. Walter allows Brandon's feelings to flow out of each situation, expressing them with concrete accuracy. Cummings' full-page close-ups of the faces of mother, brother, and sister are done in warm watercolors, capturing Brandon and Gina's many moods. Gina, especially, scrambles across the pages with lively mischief, although she looks a little older than a two year old. It's a conventional predicament, one that many children will recognize, and Cummings and Walter skillfully portray its many dimensions. --Christine Behrmann, New York Public Library
