Description

Liz and Jimmy Reed, the creators of the “Cuddles and Rage” webcomic, have whipped up a truly delectable picture book debut featuring the antics of competitive twin cherries who will do anything to outsweet…er, outsmart one another!  

For this pair of twin cherries, everything is a competition. If Girl Cherry can swing higher, Boy Cherry will boast that he can swing lower. If one is smarter, then the other is cooler. So when they enter a contest to build the best dessert ever, they immediately pit themselves against each other. But when you’re attached at the stem, there’s only so much you can do on your own. Things could be easy as pie—so to speak—if they put aside their differences and join forces. Will Boy Cherry and Girl Cherry cream the competition by working together…or will one try to be the cherry on top?

With loveable characters and laugh-out-loud situations, Sweet Competition is the perfect addition to any child’s bookshelf. After all, there’s always room for dessert!

Praise For Sweet Competition

“Tasty from beginning to end.”
— Publishers Weekly

“In bright, amiable photos of polymer clay sculptures, the Reeds’ adorable anthropomorphic foods and pun-filled narrative combine into a clever story of friendship and cooperation. A great pick for a sharing-themed storytime.
