The Pain and the Great One: On Wheels

Judy Blume

About the book

The Pain and the Great One: On Wheels! is a fun bind-up of the first two books in the hilarious series. In these heartwarming young-fiction stories, Judy Blume perfectly captures what it's like to grow up with a brother or a sister, with gorgeous illustrations by Kate Pankhurst.

Jake ('The Pain') and Abigail ('The Great One') may be brother and sister, but they don't always see eye to eye. Abigail thinks that Jake is a massive pain while Jake thinks that Abigail thinks she is sooo great.

Whether they are riding bikes, doggie-sitting, having fun at school, getting their hair cut or throwing parties, there's always something for them to argue about. But despite these little disagreements, this pair are always there for each other, sharing in the fun!

On Wheels! includes two books in the series, Soupy Saturdays and Cool Zone. The next two books are also available as a bind-up in The Pain and the Great One: Going Places!.
