Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A girl narrator says that her younger sister complains that she never shares anything, but it's not true. The girl would be happy to give her younger sister all of her broccoli or sprouts, the warts on her elbow, her chores and homework, her broken nightlight, her slug collection, and the scab on her chin. This mixture of gross and routine things that kids don't like sets up the ending—says the narrator, "she says I never give her anything? It just isn't true./Why only last week,/I gave her the flu!" The appealing surprise ending wins a chuckle. Krejca's exaggerated portrayals rendered in crosshatched colored pencil suit the rhymed and silly text. This is a story most readers will want to read again, and while the "generous" girl character may not look like the manipulative Angela Pickles of "Rugrats," most children would swear she is a close cousin. Part of "A Rookie Reader" series, Level C. 2002, Children's Press,

    FUNNY! CHARMING!

    How does a girl respond to the accusation that she never shares with her younger sister? By proclaiming all the things she would gladly share: her broccoli, her time outs--I don't want to give it away. A simple story brought to life by hilarious illustrations, this is something siblings of all ages will love.
