It isn't easy being Julian's younger brother.  When Huey has bad dreams, Julian says it's no big deal.  When Huey orders trout in a restaurant and it comes to the table whole with an eye looking straight up at him, Julian reminds Huey he'd better eat it all.  And when Huey wants to study animal tracks with Julian and his friend Gloria, Julian tells him he's too young.  But he's not a little kid.  He's six years old and he's an adventurer, a chef, a tracker, a scout--and much more!  Set in large type with wide margins, these five short, funny, and satisfying stories have all the originality and sparkle of the Julian books with a fresh new voice.

Baker & Taylor
A collection of five, funny, short stories set in large type, will have any child, particularly a younger sibling, laughing at the difficulties of having an older brother who thinks that Huey is just a kid.

In which Huey invents banana spaghetti for a Mother's Day breakfast-in-bed and fools his older brother Julian marvelously, among other things. When Julian gets a book on animal tracks and dismisses Huey's request to look at it because, J says, Huey isn't old enough, Huey sneaks peeks at the book, replicates the tracks of a zebra and an elephant leading up to the house, and has Julian agog for days and setting up zebra traps. When Huey isn't happy with the way his invention, banana spaghetti, looks and tastes and doesn't want to serve it to his mom for Mother's Day, Huey's dad (I love the parents in this book--firm with rules, patient with mistakes and concerns) praises the idea and helps him alter the execution, resulting in something the whole household finds tasty.

One mark of a good beginning chapter book for me is, if it's a series, whether I'm inspired to go read more. With many I'm not, but with Huey (and, recently, Dyamonde Daniel and Anna Hibiscus) I am.
