A big sister lists the reasons why her little bother – I mean brother! – is a pest, and her efforts to make him disappear. Then one night she discovers his cot is empty and worries that she may have been successful. All ends well, and she realises that she wants to keep him around after all. Lovely pictures and the expressions depicted on the children’s faces are priceless.

One cautionary note - one of the pictures is of cats looking a bit scary, having apparently eaten the little brother. It works with the story, but small children may not like it.
