My Rotten Redheaded Older Brother

There's nothing worse than a rotten redheaded older brother who can do everything you can do better! Patricia's brother Richard could run the fastest, climb the highest, and spit the farthest and still smile his extra-rotten, greeny-toothed, weasel-eyed grin. But when little Patricia wishes on a shooting star that she could do something, anything, better than Richie.

When a traveling carnival comes to town, she decides what that something will be: she'll ride the merry-go-round longer than Richie. And when she wins the day, but falls and hurts herself getting off the merry-go-round, she'll discover just what wishes — and rotten redheaded older brothers — can really do. Patricia Polacco's boldly and exuberantly painted pictures tell a lively and warmhearted tale of comic rivalry and brotherly love that will ring true to anyone with their own "rotten" older sibling.
