No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Ruby and Rose are twins but they are as different as night and day. Rose is their mother's golden girl and while Ruby will work, Rose will only play. One day Ruby tumbles down a well into the realm of Mother Earth. The work she does there enables things to flourish on the earth and Ruby is clothed in a golden cloth when she leaves. When Rose seeks the golden reward, her laziness means things wither and die on the earth, and Rose is showered in thistles and thorns. Sister Night & Sister Day is a lively picture book about the true colours within, told in the folktale tradition. Beth Norling is an artist who illustrates the realm of myth and mystery and brings charm to the everyday world of families, plants and animals. This picture book, Beth's fourth, is about the good and the not-so-good in all of us.
