From acclaimed author-illustrator Charlotte Voake comes a sprightly tale about twins that doubles as an ode to individuality — and a celebration of sibling bonds.
Hello, Charlotte! Hello, Simon! Charlotte and Simon are twins, but they couldn't be more different. Charlotte likes to build things, and Simon likes to knock things down. Simon likes to draw shapes and patterns over and over again, and Charlotte likes to copy the numbers on the clock. Charlotte and Simon don't even look much alike! But whether upside down or right side up, Charlotte likes Simon just the way he is, and Simon likes Charlotte just the way she is — making this sibling pair truly two of a kind.

CHARLOTTE VOAKE is the author-illustrator of GINGER, GINGER FINDS A HOME and PIZZA KITTENS. Of HELLO TWINS, she says, "This is about my brother and me when we were little. When they heard we were twins, everyone expected us to be very alike, but nothing could be further from the truth!" Charlotte Voake lives in Surrey, England.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-K–In this autobiographical story, readers meet two siblings who are nothing alike. Simon loves to eat and always cleans his plate, but Charlotte would rather suck her thumb and daydream. Even when the twins share a common interest, they take their own approach. Both love books–Simon looks at the pictures, while Charlotte enjoys enhancing the pages with a few pictures of her own. When they take their toys for a stroll, Charlotte pushes the baby carriage gently, but Simon propels it forward with a jolt, ejecting a doll and stuffed animal. Despite their differences, however, they like each other just the way they are. The lithesome watercolor-and-ink illustrations are amusing and consistently expand the simple text. The twins and the objects they play with are drawn with thick lines embellished with splashes of vivid paint, and the large images fill the pages. The heavy cream-colored paper makes a cozy backdrop for the action, and the book's clean design keeps attention focused on the endearing characters and their relationship. A charming addition to the oeuvre of twin tales that focuses on individuality as well as unity.–Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal
