Product Details


“The art is arresting and amusing, a skillful combination of watercolor and other media, using a limited palette. […] the book is noteworthy for taking the viewpoint of a younger sibling instead of the more common theme of a beleaguered older child. Gently humorous art and text transform a simple story into a haven for children feeling temporarily sibling-wary. A tender, whimsical look at growth, change, and sisters.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Ciraolo handles soft crayon with practiced (not to mention fashion-magazine-worthy) skill, drawing domestic scenes and clothing in a palette of warm grays and olives, accented with vivid orange. The advent of adolescence in an older sibling is a less common theme for a picture book, and Ciraolo treats it with style and charm.”
Publisher’s Weekly

“Rendered in muted watercolors and pencil, the illustrations display the action and a sense of isolation. Readers may see their own growing siblings reflected in this thoughtful book.”
School Library Journal

“I think this book is a very sweet way to address an age gap in siblings for children who have one or more older siblings starting adolescence. It is a great way to open discussion with them and I feel this book handles it in a respectful, applicable, and even charming way. The illustrations definitely add to the charm and I love the simple, muted color palette that Simona choose. It is one to definitely add to your library.”
Book Nerd Mommy

“Simona’s art style might seem simple at a first glance, but her illustrations are so evocative and emotive that you really don’t need any words to tell you the story. Her work is a wonderful addition to any bookshelf, children and adults alike!”
—Varsha Ravi, Between Bookends
