Horn Book Review

After her architect father's house model is damaged, Olivia creates a larger colorful version that pleases Father's client (Builds). Olivia tries to keep her little brother from growing when she learns he'll probably be taller than her as an adult (Measures). The short, simple sentences are easy to read, but these adapted TV screenplays are slight and the illustrations lack energy. (c) Copyright 2013.
