About This Item

New York, NY Putnam Pub Group, 2002. Hardcover First Ed; First Printing indicated. First Ed; First Printing indicated. Illustrated by Tomie dePaola. Near Fine in Near Fine DJ: Both book and DJ show only minute indications of use. Book shows lower rear corner mildly bumped; binding shows barely discernible lean, but remains perfectly secure; text clean. DJ shows minor wear at lower edge; price unclipped. Overall, very close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 4to. A "Barkers" Book. Hardback with DJ. I've often recommended A New Barker in the House to prospective foster and adoptive families. The book is kid friendly; sentences are short, and illustrations are large. The story itself shows two siblings preparing for a new sibling who will be joining their family, who speaks another language. The older siblings work through some fears and unrealistic expectations of their future brother, and eventually are able to accept him healthily. I'd recommend this book for kids up to age 9, in families that intend to adopt.


The Barker twins, Morgie and Moffie, meet their adopted brother, Marcos, in this wonderful sequel to Meet the Barkers. But Marcos isn't a baby-he's three years old, and he only speaks Spanish. As Marcos plays dollies with Moffie and dinosaurs with Morgie, he's a little bewildered until he gets the twins to understand what he likes to play. As Marcos learns some English, the twins quickly learn some Spanish words and phrases. Soon enough it's clear that with a new Barker in the house, the Barkers are a very happy familia!
