A Guide To Sisters by Paula Metcalf & Suzanne Barton (Children's, Picture book, 10E/10E)

Super cute!!!
 October 2014, Words & Pictures, 32 pages, Hardback, Review copy 

Content: lots of humour 

Summary from Frances Lincoln 
Sisters. That special bond. Your sister is always there when you need her. And sometimes when you don’t.

Nayu's thought s
Although those without sisters will love this hilarious guide to having a sister (predominantly from an older sisters point of view), those who already have sisters will know just how spot on all the advice and comments are. The illustrations are bright and colourful, capturing specific moments that many with sisters go through (dressing up in too big clothes, playing together, little sister being 'helpful' in a way that's the opposite). 

I was giggling through every page, almost in tears because it was so funny and happy tears at the end because it is a touching read. This is staying firmly on my bookshelf for whenever I need a pick me up. I'd love to see more like this, one for brothers (I have none), maybe one for mothers & fathers from the child's view, of course!
