Okay, this one's fun.

Lee comes between Ray and Kate. He feels forgotten and confused. he's either "too big" or "too little" for much of what his siblings do. But then he pulls out his guitar and starts to sing the blues about this problem -- and draws a crowd of other "middle" kids. Lee ends up struttin' and happy. Cute and quirky. Illustrations cover the full page. Great I know any middle kids to share this with?
