? "[An] endearing tribute to sibling interactions and affection."—Kirkus, STARRED review
From theNew York Times best-selling illustrator ofGoodnight, Goodnight Construction Site andStick and Stone comes a sweetly humorous celebration of the love between siblings and the power of imagination.

In this warm, funny story from beloved creator Tom Lichtenheld, a younger sister impatiently awaits her older brother's return from school. As his bus draws closer, she imagines all the fantastical adventures that await them. From climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in the playground to building a cardboard castle, every adventure, large or small, is more fun . . .when my brother gets home.

Siblings of all sorts will cherish this imaginative reminder that the greatest thrill of all is simply being with the people we love.

? "From the striped, marmalade cat to the scruffy, up-for-anything dog, everyone is supercharged and ready to go...their imaginations make their ordinary suburb quite extraordinary. The characters' energy explodes from this endearing tribute to sibling interactions and affection."—Kirkus, STARRED review

"It’s a touching story of anticipation rewarded and unalloyed affection reciprocated."—Publishers Weekly

"Everything seems better when your favorite person gets home. A sweet-natured tale for young children that celebrates the special bond between siblings."—School Library Journal

"With great charm and sweet, lighthearted moments, Lichtenheld (Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site, 2011) offers an affectionate portrayal of a brother-sister relationship.... While it highlights one duo, this also universally conveys the joys of creative play, which is made more meaningful when shared with someone special." —Booklist
