Casey and Kyle: I’m Saving Up For A Big Brother!!! by Will Robertson reminded me why I have always loved the comics and how much I miss one of my favorites, Calvin & Hobbes by Bill Watterson.
In this side-splitting book, brothers Casey and Kyle spend their time annoying their parents, being misunderstood by their parents, dealing with bullies, and being forced to eat lima beans. The day this book came in the mail I read it cover to cover. I loved it. It’s the perfect display of what life with kids is like, but it’s also a great example of how fun and how tough it is being a kid. From digging for buried treasure to torturing little brothers, from being bamboozled by mom over bedtime to driving mom crazy over dinner time, and from Halloween to Christmas, this book will make you laugh out loud.
After reading Casey and Kyle: I’m Saving Up For A Big Brother!!! I want to own all the Casey and Kyle books. My husband got a kick out of them too. Between the illustrations and the silly antics, you can’t go wrong with this one.
