Though two sisters are different in many ways, they are alike, too--most importantly, in their love for each other.

DAVID McPHAIL, the author and illustrator of dozens of popular picture books, has garnered numerous prestigious awards, including a New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year. He lives in New Hampshire.
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
