Review:
Felix has a beloved stuffed donkey named "Poncho." He can tell Poncho that he doesn't like his new baby sister--even before she comes home from the hospital. When she does come home, Felix's mother tells him to say hello, Felix sits on the sofa, as far away as possible, clutching Poncho and thinking "Bye-bye." When baby sister can walk, the family takes a trip to the zoo. Felix has such a good time fantasizing about what the large animals can do to his sister that he has a melt-down when it's time to go home. Although his parents can't resolve his tantrum, baby sister can; she picks Poncho up from the car floor and hands him to Felix.
