Eugene's story is the story of almost every child who has found himself in the middle. All day, he finds himself trying to tell his own story. He wants to talk about how nicely he can pour his cereal. His sister Winifred interrupts to point out he is spilling. He wants to tell about the shoes he can put on. His sister points out that he has them on the wrong feet. When he tries to say that he'd like to walk the dog, Winifred is quick to interrupt- "We don't have a dog!" In short, Eugene's story is that he cannot tell his story. At least not until it is bedtime when he can dream - that he is an only child.Richard Scrimger evokes a gentle and realistic family life in his tales of Bun Bun, Winifred, and of course, Eugene.

This book doesn't really encourage sibling togetherness!

Poor Eugene is caught between his older sister, Winifred, and his younger sister, Bun Bun. And as a middle child, Eugene tries to be his own person, but finds that the bossiness of Winifred keeps getting in the way of him telling his own story. How he learns to live with, even overcome, this situation makes for a very funny story and a delightful conclusion. The whimsical drawings make the story truly come alive.
