KIRKUS REVIEW

 Russell's little sister (``E'' Is for Elisa, 1991), now five, helps Russell through an embarrassing moment at his violin recital; gets eyeglasses; finds herself locked in the bathroom of the family's new apartment; learns a lesson about admitting wrongdoing; and, finally, welcomes a new baby brother. The episodic chapter format makes this latest in the series about an urban family and their neighbors an ideal readaloud for young children, who will identify with the need to imitate an older sib. For transitional readers, its protagonist may seem too young, while the action lacks excitement. A humorous, recognizable portrayal of family life, with Hoban's characteristic b&w sketches to add dimension. (Fiction. 4- 8)
