    1. My little sister loved reading this book!! She kept chuckling. I hope she didn't learn any new tricks XP

    2. I brought this home for my son to read and he immediately picked up. For the rest of the evening he was completely engrossed in the book. He only paused to laugh maniacally. Very dramatic. I think the topic, the humor, and the illustrations are very engaging and would appeal to any young boy. His sister picked up later and also read it cover to cover - probably to see what was in store for her immediate future.

    3. This seems too old for a "beginning reader", especially since all the little geniuses in my area (except for my girls) tend to start reading when they're 4 or 5. The kid here is clearly older.Don't get me wrong. It's funny and older reluctant reading boys will love it--though their sisters may not. But I think the beginning reader format is wrong for this story.

    4. Reviewed by Tempestt (temppatt) for TeensReadTooBradley Harris Pinkerton has an older sister named Abby. Bradley loves driving Abby crazy. He feels it's a brother's job to drive his sister crazy. That is why Bradley was nice enough to create this step-by-step guide on how it's done. He even gives brothers a fair warning not to let their sisters read this book! HOW TO DRIVE YOUR SISTER CRAZY is a really fun and easy read. The story flows and is perfect for a child who is well on their way to read [...]

    5. A mischievous guide book for boys looking to irritate their older sisters, this Easy Reader is silly enough to hold the attention of a boy reading with the help of his parents. The illustrations wouldn't seem out of place in a Saturday morning cartoon-- the lines are clean and thing, the colors bright without being obnoxious, the faces fairly simple but with expressive eyebrows. The pranks described in the book are harmless for the most part-- rubber snake hijinks, alarm clock hidden in a sock d [...]

    6. We are reading a lot of the various "Level" books for our youngest to get confidence in her reading and because, well, frankly, they are short and usually pretty entertaining. The only issue I have is with the disparities in the labeling of what is "Level 1" versus "Level 2," "Level 3," and so on. For example, this is a Level 2 book, but it's a chapter book and fairly long, so I would've likely given it a three. Whatever, it was a fun book to read aloud, although I read it to our girls (rather t [...]

    7. This is a childs' reader at stage 2, reading with help. My son and I read lots of books daily and to be honest, most of the time he thinks I am torturing him in some way, but this book- wow! It was the first book I think he has ever read that he was completely excited about, laughing all the way through, and scheming to take ideas from the book to play tricks on his siter. I am SO thrilled that finally SOMEthing sparked his interest and got him reading joyfully! More than that, I could see he wa [...]

    8. So brilliant! This book is really funny. The "I Can Read" editors at Harper Collins placed it under Level 2, "High Interest Stories for Developing Readers." That sounds about right! Lots of little brothers (the kind whose big sisters pick on them) will enjoy this one plenty of good, not-very-mean ideas here. I'm going to book-talk it to first and second graders when I go visit classes this spring. I am the big sister in my family, so I'm glad my brother didn't have this book when we were growin [...]

    9. Audience: The audience for this book is definitely early grades. The story talks about a brother who does nothing but bug his sister and then apologizes at the end. Teachers could use this story as an introduction to social skills and the consequences for decisions that are made. Appeal: The pictures and storyline tell it all. Any primary grade student would love to get new ideas on how to bug their siblings. The story is also a very simple chapter book for those students who may be ready for th [...]

    10. This is one of those books where I could have sworn that I'd read and reviewed it for you guys already, but see a blank space here so I have to remedy that. This is about a boy and his sister, but coming from me - a little sister to a few, this definitely hits a cord and makes me laugh out loud. This is a fun and family friendly early reader from the Level 2 developing readers category and it's a good one for all audiences. *Thanks to HarperCollins for providing a copy for review.* posted: creat [...]

    11. Older kids with siblings would probably relate to this better than an only child not quite four. It took us two days to finish it because he thought the main character was mean and was confused by his behavior.It led to a philosophical discussion about personality types, so there's a plus, but I rate these on my son's opinion, not mine.

    12. This book is cute for early readers! Bradley considers himself the best brother ever because he knows all of the ways to prank his older sister Abby. She is the star of his jokes in every place he can think of. He hides things in her room and puts things in her bathroom. He even goes into her underpants drawer, a place he was forbidden to go. Easy to read but a bit mischievous.

    13. My first grade son thinks this book is hilarious, but I've cautioned him that should he try any similar pranks on his older sister (stealing towels, putting things on ceiling fans) he'll be in trouble!

    14. I loved reading this story. Not only was it funny, but I can just see young boys doing the exact same things Bradley does in this book! He makes it his 'job' to scare and irritate his older sister. I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my opinion.

    15. 3 stars from me, 4 from my 7 year old. He has grand plans for his older sister.A little dated, but still cute.

    16. Be careful when suggesting this book. Little brothers will be totally capable of doing these practical jokes. :>

    17. Haha! I just read this to compare it to my own life with three older sisters. Possibly also to get some tips

    18. Grades 1-2. As if younger brothers would need a manual!! Boys with older sisters will adore this funny book.

    19. My kids ove this book! Me, not so much!! Do kids really need more ideas on ways to drive their siblings crazy?
