My Little Sister and Me by Maple Lam
“Today is an exciting day. I get to take my little sister home from school for the very first time. It’s a big job for a big brother, but I can do it!
“Debut author-illustrator Maple Lam’s charming story celebrates the special relationship between a little boy and his younger sister.” [JPB LAM,M]
“THE BOY is a nameless slave on a mission to uncover his true destiny.
THE GOBLIN holds all the answers, but he’s too tricky to be trusted.
PLAIN ALICE is a bookish peasant girl carried off by a confused dragon.
And PRINCESS ALICE is the lucky girl who wasn’t kidnapped.
“All four are tangled up in a sinister plot to take over the kingdom, and together they must face kind monsters, a cruel magician, and dozens of deathly boring palace bureaucrats. They’re a ragtag bunch, but with strength, courage, and plenty of deductive reasoning, they just might outwit the villains and crack the goblin’s puzzle.” [J CHILTON,A]
