From New York Times bestselling illustrator Kady MacDonald Denton and award winning author Cary Fagan comes a charming sibling story that has the makings of a contemporary classicBenny's little brother is really good at a lot of things making potions and pap. Benny is kind of a jerk The way he s drawn and the activities he s doing make him seem a lot older than his brother Think a teenager and a kindergartner As such I expected a lot tolerance from Benny Instead he comes across as kind of a narcissist After the little brother gets fed up with trying to do stuff with Benny he goes off and does his own thing Only then does Benny want to spend any time with the kid It s like he doesn t want to participate unless it s on his own terms And then we see the little brother using the same tactics as Benny used basically shutting out his brother which I don t think is a very healthy thing to be teachingI don t like the illustrations that much They re almost messy for lack of a better word The drawing style is kind of chaotic and I don t care for itI also don t like the writing style The dialogue isn t punctuated so in the beginning I just assumed that most of the book was dialogue But then almost halfway in the little brother starts narrating in the first person That made me even confused because it was difficult to tell when he was talking to the audience and when he was talking to his brother I prefer picture books to have clearer writing than thatOverall I wasn t impressed By the end of the repetitive text I couldn t stand the little brother much myself any And the pictures aren t to my liking I wouldn t recommend this one Thank you to NetGalley and Tundra Books NY for providing a digital ARC
