MEET THE PAIN: My sister's name is Abigail. I call her The Great One because she thinks she's so great. Who cares if she's in third grade and I'm just in first? MEET THE GREAT ONE: My brother's name is Jacob Edward, but everyone calls him Jake. Everyone but me. I call him The Pain because that's what he is. He's a first-grade pain. I'll always know exactly what he's thinking. That's just the way it is. These seven warm-hearted stories will give readers a peek at how a brother and sister relate to each other.

Professional reviews

"Squabbling siblings demand a dual reading, and they get outstanding portrayals by Fred Berman and Kathleen McInerney. Berman is first-grader Jacob, who is called "The Pain" by his older sister, Abigail. Kathleen McInerney portrays Abigail, whom Jacob calls "The Great One" because "she thinks she's so great!" Berman's depiction of Jacob is so exuberant that he's a bit annoying. McInerney has a self-assured tone that exemplifies Abigail's bossiness as an older sister. A series of vignettes typical of childhood ensues. "The Great One" hides the fact that she can't ride a bicycle. "The Pain" eavesdrops outside his sister's door. Discerning listeners will hear the tenderness beneath their rivalry. S.W. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
