Two siblings have a falling-out and make up again in spectacular style in a warm, witty story with sure appeal for little monsters everywhere.

Once there was just Natalie. And then there was Alphonse, too. Natalie mostly doesn't mind Alphonse being there--they both like naming pigeons ("Banana " "Lorraine "), bouncing things off bunk beds, and sharing a story together on the chair. But Alphonse sometimes draws on things that Natalie has made. And when she finds him eating her favorite book, she's had enough: "Alphonse, that is not OK to do " With bold illustrations and a subtle touch, Daisy Hirst visits the familiar territory of sibling squabbles--and the touching bond beneath it all that sees little monsters through.
