A timeless story involving pecking order. I am from a large family and remember being in between two. I like the way the author helps children not only understand the struggles of a child "stuck in the middle," but also focuses on the positive aspects of being in the middle. Gillean can switch back and forth and enjoy the best of both worlds. Children of all ages will not only relate to this story, but will appreciate seeing the familiar lovely little ladies from Ey Wade's other storybooks. The wonderful pen and ink drawings throughout the series are simply fabulous. Ms. Wade is a talented artist and author.
