Written by Judy Blume

Illustrated by Kate Pankhurst

Featured Books for 5+ readers

LoveReading View on The Pain and the Great One: Friend or Fiend?

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.
