I'll Fix Anthony

Written by Judith Viorst • Illustrated by Arnold Lobel

Reviewed by Katie C. (age 8)

A boy has a big brother named Anthony. Anthony won't play with him because he is mean. His mother says Anthony loves him but Anthony tells him he stinks. When the boy is six he will get to be better at things than Anthony. He will go to the flower show with his mom and Anthony will have the mumps. When he is six his friends will call him on the phone and no one will call Anthony. He will fix Anthony.

I like this book because it was funny. He had a lot of ideas about how he would be better than Anthony. I thought the Mom was nice.

I would recommend this book to my friends because it is funny. My friends like to sharpen pencils like the little boy in this story.
