Rated 5 out of 5 by from Frances is becoming a better sister and what a chuckle! Frances really wants to eat Gloria's present! Sharing and giving coveted things can be challenging. Frances is becoming a better big sister with every story. Storytelling at its best. A must have and a good bet. Precocious 2 year olds or four and up. The original Frances series are nice long tales but their content is perfectly fine wee book addicts.
