Russell and Elisa

Written by Johanna Hurwitz

Reviewed by Angela T. (age 7)

I chose this book because I like the picture on the cover that shows that Russell is cutting his friend's hair.

The book is about Russell and his little sister Elisa. Russell sometimes is mean to his little sister. Russell is ten years old and Elisa is four years old. Each chapter has different stories. They went to the ballgame and Russell had a sleep-over date at his friend's house. One of my favorite parts was when Russell was at the sleepover and he had to sleep in his friend's little sister's bed.

I will recommend this book to my friends because if they have a little sister or little brother they will like it. This story tells all about how they sometimes fight and sometimes help each other.
