Written by William Steig
What is a kindhearted little brother to do when his, Mr. Know-it-all mean older brother shrinks himself? Look after him, or leave him to find his own way? When Charles has the opportunity to be BIG brother to a smaller version of Yorick, he does not disappoint. The illustrations, language, and message give children a glimpse into the past. A fun read with many messages and opportunities for discussions.
