Rated 4 out of 5 by from Little siblings can be the best pals! Sometimes the best playmate you have is the one who sleeps down the hall. Russell Hoban's wit and knack for writing helpful little picture books is amazing. I loved all of the Frances stories when I was little but only vaguely remembered them. I am a fan again! They are never didactic but always helpful and hilarious. This is a lovely one about friendship and siblings.
