A sensitive and reassuring story about becoming a big brother or sister.

When a little brother or sister comes along, everyone is excited... everyone except one little person who can't quite understand why everything has changed.

Follow the tale of one older sibling who learns that having a baby brother or sister can be truly magical - aren't they lucky!

Reviews

`Aren't You Lucky,' that's what everyone keeps saying, but to a small first child, the arrival of a new baby can feel anything but lucky. After the long nine month wait, and the bewildering appearance of something that `looks like a raspberry', there is a period of adjustment- and few books cover this as realistically or as sympathetically as this one. Catherine and Laurence Anholt are well known for their books about family life, and this book certainly shows that they really know their audience.
