Meaniehead by Bruce Eric Kaplan

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.
