Like many other expectant big sisters, Iris is thrilled about having a sibling. . . until she actually meets her sister, Baby Rose, who turns out to be a "fusspot." Guest's chapter book will ring true for children who've discovered how disruptive little babies can be; it will also encourage them to be patient--being an older sister can be fun, as Iris eventually discovers. Barbara McCulloh has done a fine job narrating the other books in Guest's Iris series. McCulloh's steady, companionable voice is perfectly paced for the early reader--her clear and careful pronunciation helps these listeners follow the words without marring the story's pleasure for other listeners, who will also enjoy this tale.
