A sweet tale about kindness, jealousy, and fairness perfect for reading when a child is sick or well.Edward is sick and Elizabeth is well, and nothing could be more unfair! Edward gets to stay in bed and everyone treats him like a prince. Elizabeth has to get out of bed, get dressed, go to school, come home and do chores, finish her homework and practice the piano. "I wish I was sick too!" Elizabeth complains, and soon, to her dawning dismay, her wish is granted. Jealousy and kindness, fairness and responsibility, the passionate complaints and pleasures of childhood are well represented here by a close-knit and surprisingly intellectual cat family, drawn with good humor and sympathy by the illustrator-author couple, Aliki and Franz Brandenberg. The perfect book to read when you're sick, or when you're well and wish you were sick too.

About the Author

Franz Brandenberg is the author and illustrator of several books for children.Aliki is the author and illustrator of more than fifty children's books, including My Five Senses, Digging Up Dinosaurs, and Feelings. She grew up in Philadelphia and went to the Philadelphia College of Art. After graduating, she began a career in advertising art, and after marrying author and illustrator Franz Brandenberg moved to Switzerland, where she wrote and illustrated her first book, The Story of William Tell. Soon after, they moved to New York, where she created My Five Senses, the book that set off her career as a children's author and illustrator.


"Elizabeth is envious of all the attention her bedridden brother receives while she must go to school, do her chores, etc. Of course, when she comes down with same illness a few days later, she finds it isn't quite so glamorous as she thought. Aliki's lively pictures turn a routine set-up into just what the doctor ordered." --School Library Journal "A common experience, told in simple text, is delightfully pictured." --The Horn Book "Human families with their own Edwards and Elizabeths will enjoy the characterization." --Kirkus Reviews "This one is bound to be a favorite among the very young." --Children's Book Review Service
