Seven hilarious short stories of loving siblings, Jake (the Pain) and Abigail (The Great One) who can’t stop squabbling. A convincing slice of family life! There is also an audio version of this title available too. Be sure to also check out The Pain And The Great One: Cool Zone.

Synopsis

The Pain And The Great One - Soupy Saturdays by Judy Blume

The first in a brand new series. The Pain (aka Jake Porter) is six years old. His sister, The Great One (aka Abigail Porter), is eight. Like any siblings they drive each other crazy. Here, The Pain and The Great One experience the difficulties of bike-riding, dramas on the soccer pitch, a sleepover disaster, and 'babysit' a funny old dog who comes to stay.
