Summary

Summary

Sisters are different in so many ways, yet alike in many more. But there is one heartfelt way in which they are most alike--they love each other so very much.
David McPhail's celebration of the joys--and trials--of sisterhood has been a favorite with sisters of all ages for almost twenty years. Now published in full color for the first time, in its original intimate size, a new generation of sisters will love to read this treasure . . . together.
Features a presentation page, a personal touch for gift giving.

Booklist Review

PreS. First published in 1984 with exquisite pen-and-ink illustrations in black and white, McPhail's small picture book has now been hand colored by John O'Connor in soft-toned watercolors that add gentle warmth without in any way detracting from the simple words and lively, detailed images of the two sisters together. The essence is in the body language, captured by McPhail's delicate cross-hatching, and each page is an idyllic scenario of the girls playing, talking, disagreeing, competing--but always close and loving. The older girl is protective; the little one is full of mischief. But whether they're baking cookies, dressing up in old-fashioned bonnets, or petting a horse, they love each other. For a new generation of sisters, the situations are timeless. Even if the library has the original book, this new one will be a welcome addition. --Hazel Rochman


Publisher's Weekly Review

Old favorites make comebacks this spring. Appearing in color for the first time, Sisters (1984) by David McPhail chronicles "the story of two sisters.../ who, in many ways, were different./ .../ But [were] alike [in] the most special way of all." McPhail's pen-and-inks are hand-colored by John O'Connor. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
