Alice's World Record by Tim Kennemore
Alice has gotten the best of her older brother, Oliver, once. Her birthday pig has settled in nicely, but Oliver is just as insufferable as ever, especially when it comes to winning. Rosie is even more awful, and they are all going to visit Grandma Fox.
Oliver is Grandma Fox's favorite and Rosie is her least-favorite. She never notices Alice. Sometimes it seems like nobody notices Alice, no matter how nicely she is behaving. But then something unbelievable happens and everything is turned upside down.
Verdict: This is a great addition to a sweet and realistic series. Children ready for chapters will enjoy this story of sibling rivalry and Alice's triumph is deeply satisfying.
