My Rotten Redheaded Older Brother is written and illustrated by Patricia Polacco.
This is the story of a young girl who has what she considers a rotten, redheaded, older brother. The two siblings are constantly trying to outdo the other but much to Patricia's dismay her brother Richard is always winning their contests. Eventually, Patricia find something that she is better at but her victory is short lived as her brother has to come to her rescue.
This story is based on Patricia Polacco's relationship with her brother Richard. I like the way she includes photos of them while they were young in the front cover of the book and pictures of them today inside the back cover. The story is wonderful. The illustrations are great. This is one story every sister and brother can relate to and one that children will love to hear. My Rotten Redheaded Older Brother is one of my favorite children's books.
This book is aimed at children 4 -9 years old.
