My Big Brother JJ by Odette Elliott


My Big Brother JJ by Odette Elliott

Mum has to work through the half-term holidays, so big brother JJ babysits his little sister Jasmine for the week. The siblings have fun together doing different things each day. Sometimes Jasmine is an embrassment but JJ never forgets his responsibilities. On the last day they decide to paint a mural on the garden shed. But when they're finishing, Jasmine has an accident and paint spills everywhere. Just then Mum arrives and is horrified by the mess...until she notices the mural. A warm family story.


Charming, beautifully illustrated Irish Examiner A warm, family story, beautifully illustrated by Patrice Aggs, and ideal for the younger reader Bournemouth Daily Echo
