A girl plagued by her younger brother explains the best way to declare independence. Sly text and humorous energetic illustrations (6-8).


— From Humor


When in the course of childhood events, it becomes necessary for one (small) person to create a separate and equal hiding spot to which the laws of growing up entitle them, the truth will be self-evident: they should declare their very own country

Full of tongue-in-cheek instructions-

Make your own flag.Your own currency.Your own laws.

-this picture book offers a hilarious lesson in junior civics that shows every budding future-president exactly how he or she can create a very special place all their own.
