A surfeit of conflicts sisterical
Makes this graphic novel hysterical -
And a journey by car
Makes it all worse by far
A truce would be some sort of miracle!

Other Noteworthy Info: This incredibly fun graphic novel, published last year, is the companion to Smile and continues Raina's autobiographical childhood/tween adventures. Anyone who has siblings, or stepsiblings, or even aggravating cousins, will laugh and relate, and the author's engaging, friendly, funny drawing style is sure to appeal to a wide reading audience. Honestly? It made me REALLY GLAD I did not grow up with sisters... 

I received an ARC of this book courtesy of last year's KidLitCon, after which it promptly got mislaid for several months. Oops! Hopefully the poetry makes up for it.

You can find SISTERS by Raina Telgemeier at an online e-tailer, or at a real life, independent bookstore near you!

Somebody already does review haiku (forget who it is but it's a Cybils person) so I thought I'd go straight for doggerel.
