Little Bro, Big Sis: A Flip-Me-Over Book

By: Rocio Bonilla

There are two sides to every story.

Having a little brother is a huge pain. Almost as bad as having a big sister. But sometimes a big sister comes in handy, and sometimes a little brother is fun to have around. But just when there's finally peace in the house, what are siblings supposed to do with a wailing baby? 

Rocio Bonilla brings her signature wit and keen observations on the intricate lives of children to a story about a brother, a sister, and the art of making room in this sweetly hilarious flip-me-over book.

Kirkus Reviews

Experience both sides of sibling rivalry in this "flip-me-over" Spanish import."I don't like my brother," exclaims the titular sis, pointing at her bro (depicted as a monkey). He's needy, annoying, and noisy. But sometimes she misses him. Maybe it's not so bad having a sibling—or so she thinks until she hears the wails of her family's new baby. The story ends there, at its center. Readers can flip the book over and then read it again from the brother's perspective. Cue the déjà vu: "I don't like my sister" exclaims bro (now a human), pointing at his sis (now a rhino). Brother has his own laundry list of complaints about his sister—and, of course, a few positive thoughts, too. And, well, readers will know how the rest of the story goes. The dual-perspective storytelling is an interesting conceit, particularly in the way it plays with the first-person-limited narration and animal-as-metaphor device. Repeated phrases and mirrored image placement create strong visual parallels between the two sides of the story. Bonilla's mixed-media illustrations emphasize expressive characters and cartoon sequences. Though bro is seen playing with dolls and wearing a dress, both siblings are rather stereotypical (and pretty one-note in their negativism). The siblings present white, but there is some racial diversity in the supporting cast.
