Before Julius was born, Lilly was the best big sister in the world. (from the first line)
"Julius is the baby of the world," say his parents. Lilly, his older sister, thinks Julius is a disgusting germ. Her mind is made up until her cousin Garland says a thing or two, and Lilly has a change of heart. An ALA Notable Book, Horn Book Fanfare Book, and Storytime Selection. Full color.
From the Publisher:
Lilly is convinced that the arrival of her new baby brother is the worst thing that has happened in their house, but she has a change of heart when Cousin Garland comes to visit
Although she eagerly anticipated his birth, Lilly the mouse is unhappy about the actual arrival of her new baby brother, Julius. Wondering why her parents are making such a fuss over him, Lilly feels jealous and declares Julius "a zero." However, when a cousin arrives for a visit and says some mean things about baby Julius, Lilly instantly comes to his defense and proudly proclaims that Julius is a wonderful baby--the "Baby of the World." Watercolor illustrations accompany the text. Just one of the many popular Lilly books.
