3.5. Dessert is eight and has three ANNOYING younger siblings, which prompts her to start the Annoying Sibling Club at school. In exchange for her friends' dues, she promises to solve their sibling problems. But unfortunately, her scheme doesn't quite work as planned. Cute, funny book that will bring Ramona to mind.
