Edna is the little sister. Hester is the big sister. Put the two together and you have one sister act that can't be beat.

In four humorous, easy-to-read stories, Edna and Hester capture the essence of sisterhood as they boss each other around, stick up for each other at the swimming pool, share candy, and make Thunder Cookies. Full of ingenuity and pluck, Hester and Edna are two winning characters young readers are sure to find endearing.

At once charming and quirky, this chapter book is ideal for beginning readers, especially those who know just what it means to be a sister--big or little.

Diana Cain Bluthenthal is the illustrator of Hot Fudge Hero. She lives in the Florida Keys with her husband and son.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-3-These stories have short sentences and brief, episodic chapters. Brisson's is the better of the two, clearly showing the sometimes difficult yet loving relationship between two sisters, as the older one goes from being bossy to kind and the younger one overcomes her fears and gets in her own teasing. The characters are real, the language is accessible, and the simple black-and-white illustrations bring the two girls to life. Milly, a cat, and Tug, a mouse, also exemplify the difficulties of getting along with others. They compete in a spelling bee, practice a play, tell stories, and write a book describing how they met. The characters and their childlike actions will appeal to young readers and the pen-and-ink illustrations enhance the story. Unfortunately, the text is a bit saccharine and the author talks down to her audience. While not of stellar quality, these offerings will be welcome additions for libraries looking for titles to bridge the transition from beginning readers to chapter books.
