Description

"In the simple language of youngsters, it conveys what it is like to share everything while at the same time realizing how comforting it is to have someone to share things with. The simple, almost impressionistic art graces the pages with bright splashes of color and pattern." --SLJ Starred Review

"Yum's deceptively quiet text and poignant illustrations, created from prints, colored pencil, watercolor and other media, convey the girls' growing independence . . . . Readers who have ever wondered what it's like to be a twin need look no further." --Kirkus Reviews

"Yum's third picture book shows the author/illustrator thoroughly at home with the picture book form....The book's inherent symmetry, with the twins mirroring each other on the left and right sides of the spreads, is a treat." --Publishers Weekly Starred Review

"Add this to your collection of sibling stories, or grab it for an alternative take on the trials and tribulations of sharing space." --BCCB

"For grown-up readers there's another argument: Which is more wonderful -- the text, written exactly in the voice of its 5-year-old heroines . . . or the exquisite illustrations of rosy-cheeked girls, a brightly colored blanket, Asian textiles and lots of white space to accentuate them." --NYTimes.com

"Yum...plays with the picture book format in innovative ways here... The text varies its direct narration effortlessly, so that in one sentence a girl will address the reader and in the next, her twin, pulling the book's audience into the drama." --Horn Book Magazine

"Combining drawn, painted, and printed effects, the appealing illustrations, simple yet stylized, are as effective as the text. A pleasing picture book for twins, siblings, and even onlies." --Booklist
