I'll Fix Anthony is a funny account of one child's account of how he is going to be bigger, better, bolder than his older brother - when he turns six. As always Judith Viorst has captured that innocence of a child's perception and thoughts, this time around sibling rivalry. A great asset in my tool kit of books. ( )

This book tells the story of a younger and older brother. The story is told from the younger brothers point of view. So many younger siblings will be able to relate to this story. Although his brother truly loves his younger sibling he does not show it very well. ( )

This funny and charming story is centered about a child who desperately wants to play and hang out with his older brother. Everytime he tries to hang with brother and their friends he's turn down and ridiculed. This is a fun story for any children who have ever experienced sibling rivalry. ( )

I'll fix Anthony is the story of two brothers who do not exactly get along. Anothony can read, and play checkers, but he will not do any of this with his brother. His brother even lets him borrow his sweat shirt. Mom says that Anthony loves his brother, but Anothony only says, " He stinks". But when the brother turns six, he claims he is going to fix Anthony. When he is six, he will be able to do everything Anthony can not do. Like ride a bike, read the newspaper, go to baseball games, and get shots without crying. He also claims that Anthony will be sick a lot, so he will get to do fun stuf my himself.
