Description

Hannah has had it with her older sister! Tired of being bossed around, Hannah decides to run away so she will never have to see Dee Dee again. She packs her suitcase full of things she looks forward to not sharing with Dee Dee. But on her way out the door, Hannah gets a loving present that makes her rethink her plan. With its feisty characters and adorable art, this pitch-perfect portrayal of two sisters has just the right balance of sass and sweetness.


About the Author

Amy Schwartz is a younger sister herself. Booklist raved that in Willie and Uncle Bill, "Schwartz's finely lined and candy-colored gouache art give things a sprightly feel, which perfectly matches the clear, though happily unstated, affection the two characters share for each other"; and the New York Times has called her work "charming and hilariously understated." She lives in Brooklyn, New York.
