    " This was a great short book to listen to in the car with the kiddos. It was just over an hour and the reader was very good. Parents and kids both enjoyed it. I will have to read more of Judy Blume's younger novels to the kids. "

    " I just love these books. I hope she keeps writing more for this growing series. If you don't know, the Pain is the little brother and the Great One is the older sister. Very fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 AnnaMay | 11/10/2012

    " These are my favorite books. It's about a girl named Abigail and a boy named Jacob. They're fun to read about because they're always arguing about funny things. I also like it because at the end of some of the stories, she'll have one of them doing something that they would never do before. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris Hays | 9/13/2012

    " Not as good as Blume's other works. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melinda | 5/15/2012

    " An easy story to listen to, especially appropriate for siblings who tend to fight, tease and pester one another. Though this book is packed with all three, there are moments of conflict resolution, sibling appreciation and positive family togetherness. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenna | 3/27/2012

    " This book featured "The Pain" and "The Great One," a brother and sister who sometimes do not get along. The Pain's name is Jake and the Great One's name is Abigail. My mom liked to read books by Judy Blume when she was growing up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Posy Mendoza | 1/19/2012

    " As ususal, Blume's voice is pretty true. Unfortunately the bickering kids got on my nerves. But that's what kids do, don't they. Would be a useful discussion book for a classroom. "
