Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Siblings of all ages quarrel about petty matters, stop speaking to each other and gradually make up-just like the stubborn twosome in this slapstick picture book. Lucy and Eeda are adults behaving in childish fashion over an artichoke: ``Lucy thought it should be boiled. Eeda wanted it baked. It turned out hard and was impossible to eat.'' What follows is a mad game of one-upmanship as the sly sisters surprise and amuse each other by leaving the petrified artichoke in unlikely places. When at last they let bygones be bygones, they decide to rearrange their furniture-and immediately begin arguing all over again. Tusa (The Family Reunion; Maebelle's Suitcase) understands family dynamics, and the spinster-aunt roommates, with their bifocals and gray hair, are great comic foils for these nursery-room-style goings-on. A pinkish-gold light suffuses every scene of these captivating, hazy illustrations, and is given weight by deeper hues of brown, olive and teal; dim pencil outlines are barely visible amid the blended colors. Sneaky grins, beaky noses and shifty eyes lend these sisters a kitschy but impish appeal. Ages 4-8. (Nov.)
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2Two wacky sisters argue over the best way to fix an artichoke and go to bed angry with one another. Rather than a traditional apology, each one hides the artichoke in a place where it will surprise the othera purse, the bathtub, a bowl of oatmealuntil finally Eeda finds it in the oven, ``simmering in garlic lemon butter, ...stuffed with crabmeat and covered in bread crumbs, garnished with a sprig of parsley. Eeda's favorite dish!'' She reciprocates with Lucy's favorite dish, and the two enjoy a truce and a lovely dinner outdoorsuntil a similar argument ensues, and the fun begins again with hilarious results. Colorful watercolor pictures portray the zany duo and their eclectic wardrobes of striped socks and speckled scarves used to cover their avant-garde hairstyles. The sly illustrations perfectly capture small details, such as expressions of shock and annoyance on the faces of the characters, which include customers at the beauty parlor and an array of fish. Young viewers will delight in and identify with the stubborn siblings and their creative solutions to the everyday spats that are sure to arise when two such unique people spend so much time together.Tana Elias, Meadowridge Branch Library, Madison, WI
