Publisher Description

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—to show him up, she finds out 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 one-upsmanship and brotherly love.

A Fifth Grader's Third Review

Patricia Polacco's book, My Rotten Redheaded Older Brother, unruffled me because picture books end happily and this book had a very predictable ending.

Sometimes brothers and sisters, or brothers and brothers (like myself) argue a lot like Trisha and her Redheaded, Rotten, Older brother. But she finds a shooting star. What will happen? Read to find out.

I think the audience for this book is 1st-3rd graders. It's easy to read, it's a picture book, and it teaches a good lesson.

The tone of this book is heartwarming. It is heartwarming because there is friendship in the end.

The special feature of the book is that there is a dedication to the author's brother. It's special because the story is about Patricia's brother.

The characters are relatable. They are relatable because most children have the same problems like Trisha and Richie have.

This book reminds me when my brother and I used to have arguments like Patricia and Richie.

Patricia Polacco's book, My Rotten, Redheaded, Older Brother bored me because of the story's problem. Many books have the same type of problem and it gets old after awhile.
