Dan Yaccarino’s visual style helps convey all that enthusiasm and excitement. He has Elliebelly wearing fairy wings throughout the whole book, her smiling mouth wide open (except in the aftermath of Baby Anne’s swimming incident). I also loved the drawings of the pets, from the dog that happily laps up a spilled pink liquid to the emotionless hamster who skulks by every now and then.

Funny and true to life. For all those big brothers out there :-)

ELIZABETH RAMSEY BIRD Mar 03, 2013

Author Carolyn Parkhurst takes the idea of two kids playing TV, and turns it into a universal tale of big brotherhood vs. squirmy attention-sucking little sisterhood. Complemented by Dan Yaccarino’s pitch perfect pictures, your kid won’t have to own his own garlic press to get a kick out of this delightful new offering.

You’re just in time! Before us are our hosts, Henry and Elliebelly. Henry, age five, stands behind a table announcing the name of their show as his little sister Elliebelly (age two) proclaims loudly, “Cooking! I help!” A sweet red-haired, butterfly winged spawn of little sisterdom purgatory, Elliebelly’s cute as a bug’s ear but she is two, after all. So when Henry pulls out the chef hats, Elliebelly’s the one who gets him to change to pirate hats. Some mild food related mishaps render Elliebelly’s doll Baby Anne a bit worse for the wear, but in the end the pretend food is finally done. Fortunately there are some real world waffles to finish out the show, and our two hosts sign off with us until next time.
