Publisher's Description

"Sometimes I think Mom and Dad love her more than me."—The Pain
"Sometimes I think Mom and Dad love him more than me."—The Great One
The Great One thinks her brother, the Pain, is a messy slowpoke who gets dessert even if he doesn’t finish dinner. She thinks her parents love him more than they love her. The Pain thinks his older sister, the Great One, is a bossy know-it-all. Just because she’s older, she gets to feed the cat and play real songs on the piano. He thinks his parents love her more than they love him.
How will they ever find out who is loved more?

Editorial Reviews

An International Reading Association--Children's Book Council Children's Choice

"Blume strikes again, cutting to the heart of brother/sister relationships."--School Library  Journal

"Their component incidents, seen from both perspectives, will give some humorous insights to young listeners, who will also get the message that each child is equally loved by the parents."--Booklist
