Bub by Elizabeth Rose Stanton is a unique perspective on the challenges of being a middle child. Bub’s celery green monster family is extremely busy and loud. He has a seemingly perfect big sister named Bernice, and a new baby who has arrived with no name. It is all a bit much until he decides to take matters into his own hands and make it clear that he is also to be reckoned with. The sweet ending will please everyone and the illustrations are very cute. All the personalities really shine through in the pictures.
