A Dozen Cousins

Anna had a dozen cousins
All of them were boys.

What’s life like for one little girl with TWELVE male cousins? Not easy! “They read her secret diary. They used up all her paint. They put a lizard in her hat to see if she would faint.” Loaded with infectious humor, this rollicking, rhyming picture book features a happy heroine who adores her big, boisterous boy family.
