Flora's Very Windy Day by Jeanne Birdsall

Flora's Very Windy Day is a terrific fall story. Big sister Flora gets all in a huff after younger brother Crispin spills her paints. Both children are sent outside on a most blustery autumn day.

Flora knows that her super-special, heavy-duty, red boots will keep her on the ground. After she taunts the powerful gusts though, little Crispin is whisked away! Flora courageously throws off her protective boots in order to save her brother.

Meaniehead by Bruce Eric Kaplan

"Meaniehead!" Eve screams at her brother Henry as they start a spat for the ages. It all began over a simple toy, as these things often do. Author Bruce Eric Kaplan wryly comments, "There's nothing sillier than fighting about what belongs to whom, but no kids and even fewer adults know that."

Soon the bickering turns into all-out mayhem. A lamp breaks, then Henry jackhammers a hole through Eve's bedroom floor! Things truly begin to escalate once Eve finds a bulldozer. No one is safe.
