Shore, Diane and Illustrated by Rankin, Laura How to drive your sister crazy 48 pgs. Harper Collins, 2012. $3.99. (Rating: G)
Bradley plays a series of well-planned out pranks on his older sister Abby. Including going into bathroom while she is showering, scalding her in the shower, and stealing her towel so she has to run through the house naked. It gets worse from there.
I love nothing more than a good prank, but I felt seriously bad for this older sister. She was being tortured. Not cool and not really that funny. The artwork has a dated feel as well. Students may snicker, but parents won’t be thanking you should these ideas be put into action.
