In Zolotow's text, which was first published in 1966, an older sibling pointedly tells a younger one the advantages of being an only child and finally comes up with one reason why things are better the way they are. To Zolotow's credit, the last reason is as wryly truthful to a child's experience as those on the other side of the argument: without her little sister, she'd have to be alone with the grown-ups. Karas' fresh, inventive artwork captures the attitudes of the big sister perfectly, makes the younger sister cheerfully impervious to the older one's grumbling, and delivers a great deal of amusing activity in the pictures for children to enjoy. A timeless text renewed by witty, imaginative illustrations. ((Reviewed January 1 & 15, 2007)) Copyright 2007 Booklist Reviews.
