Product Details


“The rhyming tale is enhanced by whimsical watercolor cartoons…The pictures are humorous, but understated and appealing. An endearing addition to stories about family relationships and sibling rivalry.”
School Library Journal

“Sibling rivalry gets funny, nerve-striking treatment in My Sister Gracie…Johnson combines witty, Seuss-like language with delightfully silly images.”

“Johnson’s illustrations render the emotion so humorously and expressively that it feels like two new characters might have walked onto the stage of children’s books…all the subtlety and complexity of the emotional dynamics are there in the pictures…Visually this is a delight.”
The Toronto Star

“Johnson’s rhymes are silly and smart, and her illustrations will delight budding young readers or those who love a laptop reading session.”
Hamilton Spectator

“Johnson’s rhyming story moves well as the lyrical narrative bounces gleefully along. No ‘he saids’ or ‘she saids’ clutter the way. Ink-drawn details on muted watercolor follow suit–simple and exceptionally well crafted…the language makes for both a romping bedtime story and manageable goal for new readers.”
Today’s Library

My Sister Gracie is a sweet story about accepting a new sibling even if they are not quite what one expects…The rhyming text makes it a great bedtime story for a youngster about to have a new brother or sister. The rhyming text makes it a fun read aloud.”
