PreS-Gr 2-An impish child laments: "I'm the Little Sister. I'm always catching up." She relates such indignities as wearing hand-me-downs and having to go to bed at 7:30. Her poised, freckle-faced sibling plays the piano, balances a book on her head, and "thinks she's always right." The relationship does have its perks: "The Big Sister tells all the good stories!" and she "watches out for me." Japanese brush pen-and-ink illustrations with splashes of digitally produced red, pink, and brown show big sis leading the way on a nighttime trip to the bathroom, covering her young charge's eyes from smooching scenes on TV, and performing an impromptu sock-puppet show. Readers will be charmed by the little girl's simply stated truths, and the expressive drawings capture petulant frowns, looks of concentration (with tongue sticking out), and satisfied grins. With warmth and good humor, the ups and downs of sisterly love are perfectly conveyed.-Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada (c) Copyright 2010.

In the first book she has both written and illustrated, Pham (Can You Do This, Old Badger?) lends a fresh and funny perspective to the pros and cons of being second in the birth order. "The Big Sister usually does things first," says the pigtailed, mischievously chubby, narrator of her girly, schoolmarmish elder. "I'm the Little Sister. I'm always catching up." Although the text is straightforward and familiar in its compare-and-contrast observations ("The Big Sister is very neat. I'm the Little Sister. I'm not"), the book comes alive in Pham's full-page and spot illustrations, created with Japanese brush pen-and-ink and set amid fields of crisp white space. The bold, accomplished brush strokes, washes of predominantly sepia and rose colors, and cheeky characterizations make every vignette bristle and bounce with comic energy. The scenes of sibling collaboration, which often turn treacly in books of this ilk, are every bit as winning as those of sibling conflict. Whether depicting the big sister shielding the little one's eyes from a kissing scene on TV or the little one defiantly smeared with her sister's lipstick ("I'm the little sister. I can't wear lipstick and I'll never be older"), Pham has beautifully captured the touch-and-go affection that is a verity of sibling life. Ages 4-8. (July) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Big Sister Little Sister

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

PreS-Gr. 2. The illustrator of Eve Bunting's Little Badger books (and others) debuts as author in a charming appreciation of the special bond between sisters . Pham writes from the younger child's perspective about hand-me-downs, activities in which big sis invariably calls the shots, and other sibling bugaboos (I'm the Little Sister. I'm always catching up ). But at times, of course, Big Sister is a big help, as when the nighttime route to the bathroom proves too terrifying to brave alone. Pham's medium is ink applied with a Japanese brush pen, conferring a sprightly, spontaneous look to her figures, which are reminiscent of David Small's work; digitally added color in yummy hues of strawberry, caramel, and chocolate belies the sweetness underlying even moments of tension. The text never rises much above greeting card sentiment , but one can easily imagine big and little sisters--grown-ups and children--giggling together over its many tender truths. --Jennifer Mattson Copyright 2005 Booklist
