When My Brother Gets Home

In this warm, funny story, younger sister impatiently awaits her older brother's return from school. As his bus draws closer, she imagines all the fantastical adventures that await them. From climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in the playground to building a cardboard castle, every adventure, large or small, is more fun... when my brother gets home.

From Tom Lichtenheld, the New York Times best-selling illustrator of Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site and Stick and Stone, comes a sweetly humorous celebration of the love between siblings and the power of imagination. Siblings of all sorts will cherish this imaginative reminder that the greatest thrill of all is simply being with the people we love.

"Readers with cranky older siblings may keep waiting for the hammer to drop, but it never does: 'MY BROTHER’S HOME!' shouts the girl on his arrival, and as the pair walks away from the reader, the boy asks, 'So what do you want to do?' It’s a touching story of anticipation rewarded and unalloyed affection reciprocated." — Publishers Weekly
