From the creator of Ready Rabbit Gets Ready! comes a hilarious photo-story of sisterhood and one-upmanship.

Philomena needs new glasses. Her sister Audrey wants them, too. And if Philomena and Audrey have them, shouldn't their sister Nora Jane also have them?

In this utterly amusing tale of sisterhood, glasses, purses, and dresses, these girls soon make an important discovery. Not everyone needs the same things!

Praise for Ready Rabbit Gets Ready!:

* "When Ready Rabbit finally makes it onto the school bus, readers will wish they could follow him to school." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Kids might want to make stuffed rabbit toys of their own after meeting this beguiling bunny." --Kirkus Reviews

"This book features tableaus of a lumpy-eared, striped gray sock-puppet surrounded by toys, accessories and dollhouse-size furniture, photographed against white so you can examine every teeny-tiny detail. And if you're a child, or admit to having once been one, you will want to do just that." -- The New York Times Book Review
