Publisher Summary

From the creator of Ready Rabbit Gets Ready! comes a hilarious photo-story of sisterhood and one-upmanship.

Philomena needs new glasses. Her sister Audrey wants them, too. And if Philomena and Audrey have them, shouldn’t their sister Nora Jane also have them?

In this utterly amusing tale of sisterhood, glasses, purses, and dresses, these girls soon make an important discovery. Not everyone needs the same things!

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
3.75 / 7.0

This is such a funny, weird book—I can’t decide what I think about it. The message is nice (we don’t all need to have the same things) and the photographs of accessorized guinea pigs are great for a young audience, but it’s one I’d try to avoid having to read to my toddler again and again.
