Meet Flo. She's a sophisticated big sister who's part of a very artistic family. She likes playing with paint and wearing sweaters her mother knits. Flo also likes teasing her little brother, Wendell. They play hide-and-seek, but Flo doesn t look very hard. They play dress up, too, but Wendell always gets the bad costumes. Their parents wish they would get along, and they do try sometimes.
For every child who has experienced sibling rivalry, here's a humorous look at what it takes to play nice. Perfect for fans of Maira Kalman, Ian Falconer, and dog lovers of all ages.
"The contrast between the dogs’ deadpan stares and their lives of suburban industriousness...will raise grins from even the crabbiest readers." - Publishers Weekly, starred review
"The visual impact is playful and whimsical, with the painterly, colorful gouache contrasting comically with the serious, almost formal faces of the photographed dogs...a sure hit for Wegman fans." - Kirkus Reviews
