[G]etting rid of a baby sibling is a powerful fantasy. Indulging it with this happy-ending tale, softened wiht pastel illustrations and a pig-tailed heroine, can’t hurt.
—New York Times Book Review
While many versions of this familiar storyline are available, it’s Dempsey’s charming watercolor-and-pen illustrations that set this apart. The soft, pale hues against white backgrounds create tender scenes in a style that blends the wispy touch of Charlotte Voake and the sensibility of Jan Ormerod.
