A whole new look for this enduring Scholastic Canada Classic!
An updated look for a classic story, written and illustrated by two of the top names in Canadian children's books!
Daniel's family has a little problem. Daniel's baby sister, Louise, just won't stop crying. Everyone in the family tries to soothe her. Her mother sings a lullaby; her father rocks her in his arms; Grandma gives her a bottle; Grandpa plays a tune on his harmonica. But nothing works! Little Louise just goes on crying until big brother Daniel appears on the scene and tells her, "Oonga Boonga." Like magic, Louise's tears stop. But the funny thing is, these whimsical words don't work when the grown-ups say them. Daniel has the magic touch with his little sister!close this panel
