Overview

Meet Sophie and Annie. They're sisters. They're smart. They're fighting. They're funny!

Annie's sister Sophie won't eat her peas. Sophie's sister Annie is a know-it-all. Annie's sister Sophie refuses to be quiet. Sophie's sister Annie can't stop being bossy. In these three linked short stories, the two girls work out solutions to their differences and to common childhood problems -- foods touching on a plate, the difficulty of being quiet, the desire for a pet -- with wit, empathy, and moments every parent and child will recognize. Timothy Basil Ering's art gives these everyday conflicts a fresh and exciting edge. A perfect selection for both big and little siblings!
