Review: How to Drive Your Sister Crazy
How to Drive Your Sister Crazy by Diane Z. Shore
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A mischievous guide book for boys looking to irritate their older sisters, this book is silly enough to hold the attention of a boy reading with the help of his parents. The pranks described in the book are harmless for the most part-- rubber snake hijinks, alarm clock hidden in a sock drawer, turning on the sink while the sister is in the shower to make the shower cold, being annoying to one's sister's friends on the phone-- but there are some pranks it might be best not to get into the heads of more impressionable children. For instance, it advises putting chewing gum on light switches and teddy bears on ceiling fans. The one can be messy and easy to do, and the other could be dangerous if actually attempted. If you think your child can tell that the naughtiness in the book is for entertainment and not to be reenacted in real life, then this book would be a chance to have some laughs. If, however, you don't want to put ideas into anyone's head, this book might not be the best choice.
