KIRKUS REVIEW

A sibling is any other kid your mother and father have around the house. You will not like him (her). He (she) will not like you. Make friends with him (her) anyhow. It evens up the odds with your parents."" This is a set of directions for the survival of early childhood. It comes in level tones from between the clenched teeth of Kindly Old Father. Illustrated with what appear to be snippings from an early Sears Roebuck catalogue, these completely capture the mood of grim and solid sense in which Old Father advises, ""Be nice to your Father and he will tolerate you"". The author of ""Where Did You Go?"" ""Out."" ""What Did You Do?"" ""Nothing."" has really gone out and done something again. Children of all ages will profit from these rules -- especially the ones who own book-stores during the Christmas season's gift rush.
