Felix is not happy about his new baby sister. In fact, he thinks she should be sent back to where she came from. That's when a trip to the zoo inspires some creative solutions to his problem- but Felix will need some animal participation for his plans to work. Expertly brought to life by award-winning illustrator Larry Day, this quirky, tongue-in-cheek take on the new baby in the house is sure to entertain parents and children alike, and will help any older sibling realize that sometimes even little sisters can come in handy.
