Synopses & Reviews
Judy Blumeand#8217;s quintessential tale of sibling rivalry is as funny as everand#8212;and has a fresh new look!andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;When an eight-year-old girl and her six-year-old brother take turns describing each other, itand#8217;s no surprise that and#8220;The Painand#8221; and and#8220;The Great Oneand#8221; are the nicknames that emerge. As this duo debates whom Mom and Dad love most, their competition becomes increasingly humorousand#8212;because when it comes to family affection, thereand#8217;s no such thing as win or lose.
"The Pain" and "The Great One" are not their real names. But you may know their voices. When this girl, age eight, and this boy, age six, tell all about each other, they sound a lot alike. They are brother and sister and they're caught in a contest over whom Mom and Dad love most. You probably know who wins, too, in this funny, family picturebook.
