Books I Like Too..

Rosie and Buttercup
Written by Chieri Uegaki Illustrated by Stéphane Jorisch

9.325 x 8 32 pages Ages 3-7 Kids Can Press Ltd. Published in 2008 ISBN 9781553379973

“I don't want a baby sister.”
Does Rosie really mean it? Her baby sister, Buttercup, has been a bit of a handful lately. She won't leave Rosie alone, she cries at opera-singer level and whistles when she sleeps.

Before Buttercup came along, Rosie's life was blessed. Her schedule was filled with dance and voice lessons. Best of all, she didn't have to share her pet crickets, Eenie and Meenie, with anybody.

Things get so bad that Rosie decides to give her little sister away — to a good home, of course. But as she says goodbye to Buttercup forever, Rosie can't ignore a squeezy feeling in her chest …

From the perfectly paired creative team who brought you the bestselling Suki's Kimono comes a touching picture book about two sisters.
