Louanne’s an only child. She thinks that it would be fun to have a big family, just like her neighbor George. He has five sisters and four brothers—the perfect size. When her parents have to leave town for the weekend, Louanne jumps at the chance to stay with George. But during her stay, there’s too much snoring, a long line for the bathroom, and absolutely nowhere to be alone. Maybe three is the perfect number after all!

The Horn Book Guide

“Only child (well, pig)Louanne is envious of her friend George, who has nine siblings. But Louanne begins to appreciate her own small family after she spends a too-hectic weekend at George’s house. Brightly colored illustrations of an increasingly overwhelmed Louanne enliven a familiar but perennially appealing story situation. This edition is slightly larger than the original.” —The Horn Book Guide
