It's a big job when a big brother gets to take his little sister home from school for the very first time. In debut author-illustrator Maple Lam's charming story, she celebrates the incredible relationship between a little boy and his younger sister.

Lam's words and drawings offer tangible evidence to the intangible love between siblings.

...Gently told yet sharply focused... The details and the dialogue will ring true to any older sib who's tried to travel with a younger one.
