Blume, Judy. Soupy Saturdays with the Pain & the Great One. 108 pages. Grades 1-3.
In seven short stories for beginning readers, Blume expands on her earlier book The Pain and the Great One. The chapters alternate between Abigail (the Great One) and Jacob's (the Pain) side of the story. Each one is filled with humor and depicts the insights of sibling relationships. In addition to the funny stories, readers will enjoy the great illustrations by James Stevenson, another picture book author/illustrator. This is a great book to read aloud with the whole family!
