What is it like being the youngest of three brothers? In this wonderful story author Cary Fagan gives us a true-to-life picture of growing up in such a family - from the adventure and fun to the mischief and mishaps. The brothers camp out in the backyard, accidentally set the neighbor''s tree on fire, play football in the living room and even hold a funeral for their pet lizard. And although the older brothers can be mean sometimes, the youngest is usually in on the fun and delights in their crazy life together. Luc Melanson''s lively retro-style illustrations are a perfect complement, making this an utterly captivating story.
