Overview

Edna is the little sister. Hester is the big sister. Put the two together and you have one sister act that can't be beat.

In four humorous, easy-to-read stories, Edna and Hester capture the essence of sisterhood as they boss each other around, stick up for each other at the swimming pool, share candy, and make Thunder Cookies. Full of ingenuity and pluck, Hester and Edna are two winning characters young readers are sure to find endearing.

At once charming and quirky, this chapter book is ideal for beginning readers, especially those who know just what it means to be a sister—big or little.

Hester and her younger sister Edna play Queen and her maid, pretend to be mermaids, eat chocolate, and experience a thunderstorm.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-3-These stories have short sentences and brief, episodic chapters. Brisson's is the better of the two, clearly showing the sometimes difficult yet loving relationship between two sisters, as the older one goes from being bossy to kind and the younger one overcomes her fears and gets in her own teasing. The characters are real, the language is accessible, and the simple black-and-white illustrations bring the two girls to life. Milly, a cat, and Tug, a mouse, also exemplify the difficulties of getting along with others. They compete in a spelling bee, practice a play, tell stories, and write a book describing how they met. The characters and their childlike actions will appeal to young readers and the pen-and-ink illustrations enhance the story. Unfortunately, the text is a bit saccharine and the author talks down to her audience. While not of stellar quality, these offerings will be welcome additions for libraries looking for titles to bridge the transition from beginning readers to chapter books.-Amy Lilien, Ferguson Library, Stamford, CT Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
With a keen use of detail, Brisson (The Summer My Father Was Ten, 1998, etc.) explores the bittersweet relationship between sisters in this entry in the Redfeather Chapter Book series. Four independent chapters allow readers a glimpse into the world of Hester and Edna, big sister and little sister, respectively. Hester's machinations in "Queen" result in the smaller girl's cleaning Hester's room under the guise of a game, a trick that will ring true for many readers; Edna's rush to defend her older sister in "Mermaids" reveals the strength of sibling ties. Sharing a candy bar as well as an old family remedy for thunderstorm frights figure in the other two chapters. Brisson deftly captures the nuances of the dynamics of older/younger sibling interactions. The light and humorous treatment of the subject is also reflected in Bluthenthal's comic illustrations. Brief sentences and realistic scenarios offer emerging readers an opportunity to reach beyond picture books to further develop their skills. (Fiction. 6-8)
