The riotously funny Lilly, last seen in "Chester's Way" (Greenwillow), thinks her new baby brother, Julius, is disgusting -- if he was a number, he would be zero. But when Cousin Garland dares to criticize Julius, Lilly bullies her into loudly admiring Julius as the baby of the world.Lilly knows her baby brother is nothing but dreadful -- until she claims him for her own. "Henkes displays a deep understanding of sibling rivalry and a child's fragile self-esteem....Lilly is a superb and timely heroine." -- Publishers Weekly."

    I like the book because it tells me about baby what they do when they grow up. They give me ideas how to care when I have a baby sister. ( E.G. how to be smart, wise and clever) While Lilly her sister will tell her thing that will not make her smart, wise and clever. When her mother or father tells Julius the right way to do things while Lilly will teach him the wrong way of doing things. Lilly’s mother tells to be as extraordinary as Lilly and Lilly’s father tells him to be like very clever.
