MY BOOK REVIEW
This is a very cute children's book talking about a first child having to deal with the new baby. When it comes to grade level reading I would say 2nd-3rd grade because there are some tricky long words in this book. Tristian Tait did an amazing job with the illustration. Every page had some really fun details. Some of the drawings remind a little of Manga. This is a great bedtime story. The best part about this book it had a surprise twist I never saw coming.

the other one vanish came true. His goal was to write a book that was equally
fun to children and the adults reading to them. With wacky humor and richly
detailed illustrations, Abracadabra
Whoopsie is a story that anyone with a sibling can relate to, capped with
exciting twists and an ending that may bring a tear to your eye. The book
