Hornbook mentioned..

Those strong-willed sisters fromThe Twins’ Blanket are back in The Twins’ Little Sister, a fresh take on both the sibling-rivalry and new-baby themes. Ever competitive, they are now fighting over Mom’s attention when, despite their objections, Mom brings home a new baby sister. Author/illustrator Hyewon Yum’s twins are believably childlike in their directness and self-centeredness. Each step forward in accepting the baby has its source in a self-interested motive, but accept her they finally do — and the twist at the end is both funny and fitting. Collage elements add texture and interest to the gouache illustrations. (Farrar/Foster, 3–5 years)
