Revenge of the Itty-Bitty Brothers by Lin Oliver

Oliver, Lin. Revenge of the Itty-Bitty Brothers, illustrated by Stephen Gilpin. Simon & Schuster, 2009. $14.99. Content – G. In the third book in the Who Shrunk Daniel Funk series, Daniel has learned how to control his shrinking by giccuping (mix of hiccup, burp, and gargle). Daniel likes to shrink on demand to escape his many sisters and hang out with his newly discovered toe-sized twin Pablo. Pablo and Daniel stow away on model rockets for an exciting launch. All goes well for Pablo and his parachute, but Daniel’s parachute doesn’t deploy. He crashes in La Brea Tar Pits and must make his way out before he becomes the smallest fossil. The ink illustrations help propel the story along and each chapter begins with an interesting Funkster fact. Purchase title if the series is popular at your library. EL-OPTIONAL.
