Publisher's Description

For every kid who has ever had trouble sharing a special toy.
Peanut has a new ball and her big sister, Fifi, wants to play with it. Peanut doesn't want to share, so Fifi tries to entice her with the many different imaginary games they could play with the ball--they could tell fortunes, or have a bakery, or let a seal balance the ball on its nose! Peanut is NOT convinced, until Fifi comes up with a spectacular imaginary adventure that Peanut can't refuse: a trip to space! But is it too late for her to join the game? 
Illustrated in bold graphics and bright colors by an illustrator Maurice Sendak calls "an artist with a superb eye for line and composition," here's a story where the older sibling doesn't always have the upper hand.

Author Bio

A former school teacher, Randall de Séve is the author of the New York Times bestselling Toy Boat and the popular The Duchess of Whimsy, on which she collaborated with her husband. Ms. de Séve was inspired to write Peanut and Fifi Have a Ball after witnessing a similar exchange between her daughters. She lives in Brooklyn, New York with her family. 

Paul Schmid has written and illustrated a number of books for children, three of which have been honored by the Society of Illustrators. He won the Maurice Sendak Fellowship to spend a month with Mr. Sendak working on Peanut and Fifi Have a Ball. Mr. Sendak called Paul, "an artist with a superb eye for line and composition." He lives with his wife and daughter in Seattle, Washington.
