Poppy, the little rabbit with a big personality, has a BIG problem — new baby twins! She is thrilled when her grandmother comes to help with the new babies, but when the twins keep GeeGee too busy to play, Poppy's jealousy spirals out of control. After some thinking time, Poppy finds a way to use her talent and creativity to welcome both her grandmother and her little sisters.
This is an honest and heartwarming look at sibling rivalry, and readers will identify with Poppy as she struggles with jealousy — and cheer when her big heart helps her overcome her negative feelings.
"The twins occupy most of GeeGee’s time; she’s too busy to make crafts with Poppy and can’t even stay awake while reading her a bedtime story. Poppy finally reaches a breaking point. 'Worst babies!' she shouts, throwing a tantrum in the kitchen, 'Worst Grandma!' Bonnet’s mixed media and collage illustrations start out winsome, but Bonnet soon shows she can make Poppy’s disappointment, hurt, and righteous anger visceral and authentic.... Readers will feel sympathy for Poppy, though the tough situation ultimately leads her to become more self-reliant and capable of putting others first." — Publishers Weekly
