The Toy Brother

The Toy Brother

by William Steig Illustrated by William Steig
""Good pictures come along fairly often, but an original, remarkable book that takes you by surprise is rare. Rejoice over William Steig's latest, in which he spoofs medieval life and takes a crack at bullying older brothers and alchemy as he tells his rattling good story."  -- "The Philadelphia Inquirer" ""A riveting tale of sibling rivalry set in medieval times, which is, at the same time, as modern as all get-out.""  -- "Newsday" ""Readers will delight in Steig's droll expressions, both visual and verbal, but the subtle lesson about brotherly love will not be lost amid teh comic goings-on."" -- "School Library Journal"
