Benny’s little brother is really good at a lot of things - making potions and paper airplanes, building forts, putting on puppet shows, even petting the neighbours cat. But whenever he tries to join in Benny’s activities, all Benny ever says is ‘No’. Maybe his little brother can watch him do cool stuff, if he’s lucky. What is a little fox to do, except give Benny a taste of his own medicine? Totally familiar yet fresh and original, tenderly told and consistently funny, this story perfectly captures the joys (and annoyances!) of sibling relationships.
