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 mad but they have fun adventures. In funny, warm and characterful episodes, the Porter family comes to life as The Pain and The Great One battle it out in the small dramas of everyday life. Siblings everywhere, and their parents, will recognize and enjoy all they read! Click here to see the first other titles featuring Jake and Abigail.
