They blame you when they get in trouble. They seem like your parents' favorite. They are the only enemy you can't live without. Almost everyone has a juicy story about their siblings – even famous people. Meet those who got along, those who didn't, and everyone in between!
Lam's frequent black-and-white cartoons add to both humor and context.
Krull's wry asides and droll observations make for a light and lively narrative, as do Lam's loose caricatures.
The sibling tales are short and packed with humor and playful illustrators, as well as additional facts in comic form.
