KIRKUS REVIEW

 Geraldine is back and this time her little brother, Willie, trails after her, saying everything she says and doing everything she does. ``Stop copying me, Willie,'' snaps Geraldine. But Willie just giggles, until Geraldine turns the tables and figures out how to get some useful mileage out of his mimicry. Young readers will recognize Geraldine's predicament and will laugh out loud as Willie falls unwittingly into her plan. Keller (Rosata, 1995, etc.) conveys through her cheerful illustrations not only the many moods of her young heroine, but also a subplot involving Mama and Papa's own reactions to the bickering siblings. (Picture book. 4+)
