Will should be excited to start third grade. But his little brother, Steve, is starting kindergarten. The same laugh-out-loud writing and hilarious illustrations that brought us How Not to Babysit Your Brother now portray the tribulations and embarrassments of starting school with a very troublesome little brother. School will never be the same!


We picked this book up from our local library.
K and I both found this book to be so funny especially since K's little sister will be starting Pre-K and he is going into fourth. Will's little brother Steve is going to school and that means both will be in the same school. Will is not looking forward to it especially when his little brother does things that are crazy (like letting the mice out), among other things. This is a step four into reading so there are more words on the pages, though that shouldn't deter kids from reading. 
I think the humor that is within this story was great and the pictures were awesome. K hopes his sister doesn't get any ideas from Steve and embarrass him in school.
