*Starred Review* Sisters. Can't live with them, can't live without them. Or can you? Little sister Hannah tells the story here. Dee Dee is five-and-a-half inches taller (where a person's brains are, Dee Dee informs Hannah) and always one step ahead. She cuts up Hannah's apron and makes a purse; she'll let Hannah play tea party with her friendsâas long as Hannah takes the role of butler; and without even asking she grabs Hannah's one-eyed brown bear. But finally Hannah takes a standâor rather a runâas she decides to leave home. She packs her new apron and a chocolate bar, but where's her brown bear? She can't really run away without him. So Hannah enjoys playing alone for a while until Dee Dee knocks and presents her with her brown bear, one-eyed no longer. There's been something empowering about her afternoon because when Dee Dee asks her to play, Hannah now has a few demands of her own. In both heartfelt words and sympathy-inducing art, Schwartz captures the push-pull of sibling love. Bright ink-and-watercolor pictures juxtapose humor with indignation iced with tenderness, making way for an ending that's as lovable as its heroines. Any sister will appreciate this one, no matter where she falls in the family order. Copyright 2013 Booklist Reviews.
Amy Schwartz is a younger sister herself. Booklist raved that in Willie and Uncle Bill, "Schwartz's finely lined and candy-colored gouache art give things a sprightly feel, which perfectly matches the clear, though happily unstated, affection the two characters share for each other"; and the New York Times has called her work "charming and hilariously understated." She lives in Brooklyn, New York.
