Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This delightful book tells the story of parents who adopt a sister for their daughter Melissa. Her name is Kika and she comes from an unnamed country. The brief one or two page chapters are told in the first person by the little girls. Their feelings and adjustments to each other are honestly portrayed. Kika is understandably at first overwhelmed with all of the dramatic changes in her life. Melissa is eager to bond with her new sister. Their first disagreement occurs when Kika is given a beautiful new doll for her birthday that is to be only for her and not shared. Melissa cries angrily when not allowed to play with the doll and even expresses dislike for Kika. Happily, Melissa resolves the issue and all is well with the sisters. The bold, brightly colored illustrations add greatly to the text. All in all this is a good portrayal of adoption. 2004, Greenwillow Books, Ages 4 up.
—Sylvia Firth
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-This heartwarming picture book tells about Melissa and her newly adopted sibling, Kika, who barely speak the same language but must now become sisters. The story alternates between the first-person viewpoints of each girl, making it easy for readers to relate to both characters. From excitement to apprehension and jealousy to generosity, the two youngsters share their emotions as they discover what it means to be a family. The colorful, naive cartoons keep the narrative lively, with many amusing details, including a grocery list on the fridge, a sunflower-shaped nightlight, and a well-loved stuffed puppy. The illustrations lend a comfortable feel and make it fun to flip through the pages again and again. This is a lovely story for family sharing, particularly for children with new siblings in their lives.-Julie Roach, Malden Public Library, MA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Unlike many other adoption tales where a new sibling arrives from overseas, Kika is not a baby when she arrives but similar in age and size to Melissa, who eagerly anticipates Kika's arrival. Once the sisters meet, Melissa helps Kika learn some English words about birthdays, pizza, and other new things. Alternating voices narrate events as the girls, approximately 5 or 6, build a bond of friendship. The family doesn't know the date of Kika's birthday, so they designate a day and celebrate with a surprise party. When Kika gets a new doll that she doesn't have to share, Melissa pouts. Later in the finale Melissa brings Kika a card that says "Love" and Kika knows what that means. A gentle, adoption story accompanied by brightly bold watercolor paintings just right for this tale. A terrific combination. (Picture book. 4-8)

Meet the Author

Judith Caseley says, "When I was a little girl, I fell in love with Abraham Lincoln. I was drawn to the kindness and melancholy I saw in his face. My sister Jean and I prayed to a framed portrait of him that hung on our bedroom wall. To this day, when I see Lincoln's likeness on the wall of a school auditorium, my heart lifts with gladness or my eyes fill with tears. I remember the fierce secrets we told him, the joys and sorrows that were for his ears only. It was a private act of communion, and we called him A. L."

Judith Caseley is the author-artist of such favorite picture books as On the Town: A Community Adventure; Bully; Mama, Coming and Going; and Dear Annie. She lives on Long Island, New York, with her two children.
