Two brothers are alike in some ways and different in others but know "they will stick together... / always." This small square book is as much a chance for nostalgic adults to share their view of brotherhood with each other and their children as it is a child's story. McPhail's watercolor and ink illustrations successfully express the affection and struggles between the boys.

This joyful tribute to sisterhood remains a sweet celebration of the ways sisters are alike and how they differ, and how in the end ""the way they were most alike was the most special way of all. / Because, you see, they loved each other so very much."" The original pen-and-ink illustrations have been colorized, but the overall effect is less jarring than in many other similarly augmented books. Copyright 2003 Horn Book Guide Reviews

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. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
