How fun to pretend to be a Bad Guy! Though the main character may tell you he’s not pretending and never once does he drop out of character. His seemingly unwilling sister bears the brunt of his bad guy antics, but the bad guy surprises me.
The library, for instance: I expected a bad guy to dislike the library but this bad guy tells us “I love the library. They have excellent books for bad guys. I got one about magic tricks, one about tying knots, and a cookbook.” These books figure into the plot as the perfectly believable bad guy schemes against his sister. What he doesn’t figure on is his sister’s revenge. A funny and happy twist ending completes this perfectly executed and unpredictable book, written by Hannah Barnaby and illustrated by Mike Yamada.
