An only child daydreams about having one, and then many, little sisters, and all the fun they could have together. Told with humor and heart, this sweet picture book tells the story of a little girl who dreams of having one little sister, or more, and all the wonderful things they could do together. But even though a sibling isn't on the way, the little girl can still be happy getting lots of love and attention from her family.

Praise For…


What would life be like with a younger sibling? . . . Translated from French, Miura’s delightful prose is simple yet earnest, leaving ample space for well-crafted, spare illustrations. . . . Little by little, the sisters conquer that space until they fill the page—literally and metaphorically—as they wildly splash paint all over a blank canvas. . . Young readers anticipating, even hoping, for will delight in all the ways these sisters play with and enjoy each other. Start with imagination, add a sprinkle of mischief, and stir for pure joy!
