This is author/photographer Tracy Leshay's debut picture book about sharing, or lack there of. Big sister Phoebe humorously tells us her taking-turns tale of woe. Although she is determined to get along with her little sister Audrey, it is a mean-hot summer; temperatures and tempers are running high. It will take more than a day to teach Audrey to share. Time will pass - seasons will change, while Phoebe tries again...and again. A helpful fairy guides her, but until Phoebe and Audrey can magically share, "She Yelled. I Screamed...She Pulled my Hair!" In the end, this universal story gets to the heart of how one learns to share. If you want a turn with the teapot, the car or the bike, persistence, politeness and patience will be key.

A print series of Tracy Leshay's daughter's hair inspired this modern day rhyming fairy tale. Leshay's words provide a learning-to-share tool, but her 35mm pictures create a unique art-book experience. It is a glimpse into the wonderful world of black and white photography - a perfect format for exploring contrast, shape, and form while allowing the story's colorful characters to come to life. Phoebe and Audrey resemble your friends; they look real and certainly have real issues - ones that every child has experienced. The visuals make the story enjoyable to eyes of all ages, and the topic and the telling make it perfect for those ages 3-8.

"The text doubles as a playground for graphical elements by Renald and Leshay: The word "burn" is on fire, while "shake" imitates quivering. The impressive black-and-white photographs invite deeper part of a read-along, the uncommonly artful photos plot a refreshing path toward a heartfelt message." -Kirkus Reviews February 2015 Indie Pick

"Stylish images...dream-like and subtle in their impressive debut in creativity."
-Pacific Book Review and Top-5 April 2015 review

"uproarious, modern-day fairy tale"
