Publisher's Note:  

We’ve all woken up on the wrong side of the bed. But have you ever woken up stuck to the bed? Masha Sweet has. And there’s only one possible reason: her little sister Sunny. Masha is used to Sunny’s evil genius ways, but the glue Sunny used to secure a bouquet of plastic daisies to Masha’s head is not coming out! The girls have to stay home from school and through a bizarre turn of events, they wind up at the hospital. It’s the perfect place to fix Masha’s head…but first they will (almost) contract a (not so) killer virus, steal a cast, and lead the nurses on a wild goose chase. When this is all over, Sunny Sweet is going to be so sorry!

Overall Review:  

Sunny Sweet Is So Not Sorry was a delightful afternoon read for this veteran older sibling! Many times, the story's kooky twists and turns had me laughing out loud. Having witnessed and been involved in many a sibling relationship, Masha and Sunny's love-hate sisterhood felt very true to me. I can't wait to see more from them!


Sunny Sweet would be a perfect read for younger children just learning to read, as well as preteens—and siblings of all ages. This book would likely appeal to fans of Lois Lowry's Sam and Anastasia books and Beverly Cleary's Ramona Quimby books.
