I'd Rather Have an Iguana

By Heidi Stetson Mario, 1956-

When a new baby joins the family, it's hard for his big sister to be excited. She's grossed out by smelly diapers. She misses riding bikes and hunting for frogs in the swamp with Mom. And, no matter how hard he tries, Dad just can't seem to get her braids right. Somehow, a pet iguana seems much more appealing than a baby brother! At least that's how it seems at first. . .

The first-person narrative perfectly captures the voice of this irascible, yet loveable, heroine, while the comedic artwork further explores the nuances of a familiar family predicament.
