School Library Journal - 10/01/2017 K-Gr 2— Like many older siblings, Lucy finds her little sister, Mia, annoying. Mia always wants to do what Lucy does, but a lot messier, and often takes center stage. One day Lucy's patience runs out; she calls her sister a monster and tells her to go away. At first, Lucy enjoys being alone to read her books, bike, and clean her room. But she eventually starts to miss her sister and wonders where she went. Lucy goes looking for Mia, but can't find her anywhere. Finally, she notices a small, colorful door drawn on Mia's wall and touches it. To her shock, the door opens, revealing Mia along with a group of monsters. The monsters proudly tell Lucy that Mia is everything they want in a queen and they are going to keep her forever. Lucy tries to talk the monsters out of keeping her little sister, but when that doesn't work she becomes angry and a bit monsterlike herself. This fun book humorously illustrates the ups and downs of sibling relationships. Sometimes Lucy finds Mia bothersome, but ultimately she is her sister and worth defending. VERDICT A great book where stories about sibling relationships are needed. The monster aspects also make it an enjoyable choice for storytime.— Heidi Grange, Summit Elementary School, Smithfield, UT - Copyright 2017 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
