A gloriously colourful story; each page is filled with bold colour and delightful illustrations, truly capturing the mood and style of the characters.

Molly tells her story - she has always wanted a sister, one who will be just like her, to play music with, colour in pictures and read books together. But of course Chloe is nothing like Molly. At first Molly finds her sister annoying; Chloe just eats the crayons whilst Molly colours in pictures; books get ripped but only because Chloe is so ecstatic to be with her big sister. Chloe just wants to be like Molly but gets it all wrong, as often very young children do.
 
As the story unfolds, the sisters' bond deepens as Chloe wins the heart of her older sister.
