The Lovereading4Kids comment

Sibling friends and rivals The Pain and The Great One are back for another set of adventures. This time there’s embarrassment for The Pain when he muddles up friend and fiend in reading aloud, the excitement of Fuzzy the cat’s birthday party and much more. Like siblings everywhere, the Pain and the Great One love each other very much but they also fight over every little thing… Judy Blume is one of the best-known children’s authors in her native US but also now over here. She’s probably best known for her books for teens but this series featuring Jake and Abigail are a wonderful introduction at an earlier age of 6+ to a supremely talented novelist.

Synopsis

The Pain and the Great One: Friend or Fiend? by Judy Blume

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. It's Fluzzy's birthday and Jake and Abigail want to throw the best party any cat has ever had. But it's not long before they start fighting.
