MEET THE PAIN:
My sister's name is Abigail. I call her The Great One because she thinks she's so great. Who cares if she's in third grade and I'm just in first?

MEET THE GREAT ONE:
My brother's name is Jacob Edward, but everyone calls him Jake. Everyone but me. I call him The Pain because that's what he is. He's a first-grade pain. I'll always know exactly what he's thinking. That's just the way it is.

These seven warm-hearted stories will give readers a peek at how a brother and sister relate to each other.

I like the fact the book is a simple chapter book for beginning readers and isn't too challenging. The characters need to be developed more and the rivalry might not be such a good influence on young readers.read more

Listening to this audio book, I kept thinking that was a younger version of "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing." The story has the sibling rivalry aspect of that book, but it doesn't necessarily deal with some of the more mature subject matter of the book. The story is told in alternating chapters by the older sister and younger brother in the family. The title comes from the fact that each incident centers around a weekend event for the two characters. It's light, amusing fun.read more
