The Lovereading4Kids comment
A funny family story about siblings The Pain (Jake) and his sister The Great One (Abigail). The Pain is six and The Great One is eight and the stories about them tell how they do everything together and how they drive each other mad! Whatever they are doing, and this time it is standing up to a bully, rescuing Jake’s stuffed elephant from a rampaging dog and much more, the details of The Pain and The Great One’s interactions are like families everywhere. 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.

The Pain and the Great One: Cool Zone 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. The Pain is sure his parents love The Great One much more than him. The Great One is sure The Pain is loved way more than her.
