Product Information

"Older brothers and sisters will surely relate to Davy's sibling struggles, but even younger sibs will have a baaaaa-ll with this one."--"BCCB" "Cordell emphasizes the humor in the once only child's whiplash of conflicting emotions. Baby brothers may be a pain, but the havoc they create can be painfully funny." --NYTimes.com "Funny and touching in equal measure, this is a sheepish look at how imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, even when it is super annoying." --"Booklist" "Cordell's (Trouble Gum) goofy line drawings of Davy the sheep and his dozen copycat younger brothers provide an entertaining counterpoint to his poker-faced narrative." --"Publishers Weekly" "This is not just another new-baby book: Cordell's""humorous text and mischievously silly, expressive cartoon art will have readers bleating to read it again and again." --"Kirkus", Starred Review

Matthew Cordell wrote and illustrated "Trouble Gum, " published by Feiwel and Friends. He has also illustrated several picture books, including "Mighty Casey" by James Preller, and the novel "Justin Case: School, Drool, and Other Daily Disasters," by Rachel Vail.
