Big Sister, Little Monster
by Andria Warmflash Rosenbaum, illustrated by Edwin Fotheringham
Scholastic, 2017

The splashy, alive and kicking illustrations drew me in and kept me turning the pages on this delightful story, with a monstrously exciting twist.

Big Sister complains of her little sister, the monster, until her little sister disappears.  But what fun is putting on a show starring one?  Suddenly concerned, she searches her little sister’s usual hiding places, to no avail.  She spots a strange door draw on the wall—and it opens!  Dozens of monsters are playing with her little sister.  They don’t like Big Sister and send her away.  But Big Sister calls upon her Inner Monster and demands the monsters give her sister back.  I did not see the monsters coming and did not see the ‘inner monster’, but loved both.  A story that will stick in the hearts of sisters.
