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.
