Description - Rosie and Buttercup by Chieri Uegaki
?I don't want a baby sister.? Does Rosie really mean it? Her baby sister, Buttercup, has been a bit of a handful lately. She won't leave Rosie alone, she cries at opera-singer level and whistles when she sleeps. Before Buttercup came along, Rosie's life was blessed. Her schedule was filled with dance and voice lessons. Best of all, she didn't have to share her pet crickets, Eenie and Meenie, with anybody. Things get so bad that Rosie decides to give her little sister away --- to a good home, of course. But as she says good-bye to Buttercup forever, Rosie can't ignore a squeezy feeling in her chest. From the perfectly paired creative team who brought you the bestselling Suki's Kimono comes a touching picture book about two sisters.
