Beware of what you wish for; Simon, the young hero of this splendidly engaging book, is being driven mad by his little sister, Anna. He suddenly remembers an old story that contains a ‘rhyme for getting rid of annoying siblings’. And the next thing he knows, Anna has vanished. This is guaranteed to strike a chord with any reader who has wished they could get rid of a tiresome brother or sister.
