A Guide to Sisters by Paula Metcalf

Sisters. That special bond. Your sister is always there when you need her. And sometimes when you don' t. This creative, witty book provides a warm, caring, funny and very tongue-in-cheek glimpse into the world of sisters, big or little. The 'just enough' illustrations capture the essence of little girls; their confidence and their vulnerability.


The illustrations in this attractively presented book are simple but engaging and totally reinforce the assertion that `There is nothing as irresistible as a little sister!

's style features a light touch yet is beautifully detailed too and her ability to bring such character to the children in this book with the slightest pen mark is outstanding. Paula Metcalf's text is funny, well observed and great to read aloud. Certainly, this guide is a winner in our household where it fits our little sister to a T. * Armadillo *'
