KIRKUS REVIEW

 An angry girl comes home from school (motion lines and cloud puffs indicate the door slamming behind her), and, finding her father at the computer, launches into a litany of generic complaints. The girl's friends--a goggle-eyed cast of characters with oversize heads--have exotic pets, unlimited access to candy, ``all the cool new toys on TV,'' customized bathtubs with portholes, and motorcycle-riding siblings. Her father's response- -``You know, you have something your friends don't have . . . Me!''--amounts to a prefab punch line. The cartoon-style manner of the telling is reminiscent of a long foldout greeting card; this is lively, but artificially sweetened. (Picture book. 4-8)
