The Pain and the Great One: Friend or Fiend?

Judy Blume Kate Pankhurst

About the book

The Pain (aka Jake Porter) is six years old. His sister, The Great One (aka Abigail Porter), is eight. Like any siblings they drive each other crazy.

It's Fluzzy's birthday, and Jake and Abigail want to throw him the best party ever! But it's not long before they start arguing, and it takes a seriously sticky ice-cream incident for them to make up.

In six warm and funny stories, Judy Blume brilliantly captures just what it's like to have - or to be - a brother and sister.
