about

A special boxed set of the #1 New York Times bestselling and Eisner award-winning Smile and its companion, Sisters! Includes bonus stickers!

In Smile, Raina just wants to be a normal sixth grader. But one night after Girl Scouts she trips and falls, severely injuring her two front teeth. What follows is a long and frustrating journey with on-again, off-again braces, surgery, headgear, and even a retainer with fake teeth attached. And on top of all that, there's still more to deal with: a major earthquake, boy confusion, and friends who turn out to be not so friendly.

In Sisters, Raina can't wait to be a big sister. But once Amara is born, things aren't quite how she expected them to be. Amara is cute, but she's also a cranky, grouchy baby, and mostly prefers to play by herself. Their relationship doesn't improve much over the years. But when a baby brother enters the picture and later, when something doesn't seem right between their parents, they realize they must figure out how to get along. They are sisters, after all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speechless! It is quite difficult to find something that will intrigue my ten year old son but when he read "Smile" for the eighth time I was convinced this book was AMAZING! I think it was the comic format combined with the true story that had him riveted. Raina Telgameier is his new favorite author! After "Smile" he couldn't wait to read "Sisters". We can only request it so many times through our library so now, it'll be under the Christmas tree for him (and his sister) Thank you!

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Smile:A New York Times bestseller2011 Will Eisner Comic Industry Award for Best Publication for Teens2010 Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor, NonfictionA New York Times "Editors' Choice""It hits home partly because there is nothing else out there like it." -The New York Times Book Review"The real focus of Smile is Telgemeier's search for identity, a universal experience with which readers will readily identify." -The Washington Post"An utterly charming graphic memoir of tooth trauma, first crushes and fickle friends, sweetly reminiscent of Judy Blume's work . . . . Irresistible, funny and touching - a must read for all teenage girls." -Kirkus"A charming addition to the body of young adult literature that focuses on the trials and tribulations of the slightly nerdy girl." -Publishers WeeklyPraise for Sisters:"I love [Telgemeier's] work, not because it is exotic or unusual, but because she writes stories we have all lived, and tells them in a way that feels uncomfortable yet transcendent.The profound thing Raina discovers is that we do not have to navigate the difficulties alone." - The New York Times Book Review* "Telgemeier's art complements her writing to great effect, offering a cheerful, vivid cartoon simplicity that allows readers to instantly engage even as it leaves room for deeper truths to take hold." - Booklist, starred review* "Told in then-and-now narratives that are easily discernible in the graphic format, Telgemeier's tale is laugh-out-loud funny (especially the story about the snake incident) and quietly serious all at once. Her rounded, buoyant art coupled with a masterful capacity for facial expressions complements the writing perfectly." - Kirkus, starred review* "Though the artwork draws little attention to itself, Telgemeier's visual storytelling skills are well-honed, and readers will be left wishing for more." - Publishers Weekly, starred review* "Telgemeier has returned with a must-have follow-up to Smile (Scholastic, 2010) that is as funny as it is poignant, and utterly relatable for anyone with siblings." - School Library Journal, starred review
