From acclaimed author-illustrator Charlotte Voake comes a sprightly tale about twins that doubles as an ode to individuality — and a celebration of sibling bonds.
Hello, Charlotte! Hello, Simon! Charlotte and Simon are twins, but they couldn't be more different. Charlotte likes to build things, and Simon likes to knock things down. Simon likes to draw shapes and patterns over and over again, and Charlotte likes to copy the numbers on the clock. Charlotte and Simon don't even look much alike! But whether upside down or right side up, Charlotte likes Simon just the way he is, and Simon likes Charlotte just the way she is — making this sibling pair truly two of a kind.
CHARLOTTE VOAKE is the author-illustrator of GINGER, GINGER FINDS A HOME and PIZZA KITTENS. Of HELLO TWINS, she says, "This is about my brother and me when we were little. When they heard we were twins, everyone expected us to be very alike, but nothing could be further from the truth!" Charlotte Voake lives in Surrey, England.
