Editorial Reviews

"Older brothers and sisters will surely relate to Davy's sibling struggles, but even younger sibs will have a baaaaa-ll with this one." -BCCB"Cordell emphasizes the humor in the once only child's whiplash of conflicting emotions. Baby brothers may be a pain, but the havoc they create can be painfully funny." -NYTimes.com"Funny and touching in equal measure, this is a sheepish look at how imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, even when it is super annoying." -Booklist"Cordell's (Trouble Gum) goofy line drawings of Davy the sheep and his dozen copycat younger brothers provide an entertaining counterpoint to his poker-faced narrative." -Publishers Weekly"This is not just another new-baby book: Cordell's humorous text and mischievously silly, expressive cartoon art will have readers bleating to read it again and again." -Kirkus, starred review"The pen-and-ink and watercolor artwork is filled with humorous detail. Think Richard Scarry's warmth and scale, with a minimalist approach to setting. The psychology of the oldest child is well chronicled here." -School Library Journal, starred review
