KIRKUS REVIEW

Mandy is proud of being as ""good as gold""-- until she observes how much laughter and attention her little brother gets by being a ""little monster."" So Mandy tries a day of being naughty and discovers that--even though the mischief makes her mother angry--her mother still loves her. Mandy may seem lucky to have such an indulgent mother; but this woman's character is consistent from the moment she boasts that her little monster is ""just like his father."" Kew sketches this lively, affectionate black family with deft, impressionistic pen and watercolor.
