My Rotten Redheaded Older Brother illustration will appear here.

This book is about a sister and a brother. Their names are Patricia and Richard. Patricia makes a wish on a shooting star. Her wish is to be better than Richard at something. Patricia finally gets her wish. She discovers that she can stay on the merry-go-round longer than Richard. Unfortunately, Patricia stays on too long, gets dizzy and falls off.

I like this book because Patricia gets her wish. My favorite part is when Patricia wishes on the shooting star. I also liked when Richard saved Patricia. He picked her up and carried her home.

I would recommend this book to my friends. I think my friends would like Patricia's brother Richard. He is silly and does funny things!
