Kid Sister by Margaret Emery, 1st Scholastic paperback printing, TX1199, 1967, 128 pages. Illustrated by Carol Wilde.
DESCRIPTION: “‘Mother, you’ve just got to make Zibby get rid of that dreadful animal,’ says Ruth .
Poor Zibby! It’s terrible to be a kid sister. Ruth and Karen don’t even try to understand her. And now they want her to get rid of her wonderful pet, Rosemary.
‘If there’s no place here for Rosemary,’ cries Zibby, ‘there’s no place for me either!’
But, before long, Zibby finds an unexpected friend- and one who likes Rosemary as much as she does.” (from the back cover)
