    DescriptionWhat older child hasn't resented the new baby? And hasn't wished for him or her to just GO AWAY? Every parent and child will recognize Harry's older brother's outbursts when Harry gets centre stage: Throw Harry in the trash! Stick Harry in the zoo! Mail Harry to the moon! But one day, when Harry is unusally quiet and his giggles and shrieks can't be heard around the house, his older brother realizes how much he misses him. Was Harry really mailed to the moon? In a delightful flight of fancy, the older sibling finds an imaginative way to accept and embrace that Harry's here to stay.

    Review text
    With keen understanding and a comic touch, Harris addresses the trials and travails of adjusting to a new baby in the house. Told with all the snappish disdain of an older sibling, Harris's protagonist laments the bygone days before his little brother's arrival. His laundry list of misdeeds inflicted by his litter brother includes nibbling on toys that do not belong to him and usurping the cozy comfort of Grandma's lap. With each infraction, Harry's big brother suggests solutions to the problem of Harry that become increasingly extreme, resulting in his demand that Harry be sent into orbit. Harris keeps her text simple and straightforward. While adults may cringe at the sentiments of the disenfranchised sibling - "Flush Harry down the toilet!" - young readers will relate. Emberley's illustrations comically convey Harry's brother's rising disgruntlement. His over-the-top characterizations of the exaggerated requests will elicit gales of giggles from all readers, regardless of their birth order. (Picture book. 3-6) (Kirkus Reviews)
