The two Mutch sisters have two of everything, and Violet believes they are as perfectly matched as the objects in their collections. Ruby, however, has other ideas. And she's ready to do something about them.
Carol Brendler and Lisa Brown present a silly, surprising, and insightful tale about staying close while respecting differences as Violet and Ruby prove that sometimes it takes a sister to know what a sister really needs. To find a solution that really works, both sisters will have to contribute their ideas! This book is a playful reminder that having some things in common doesn't mean having everything in common.
"Eventually, an overwhelmed Ruby strikes out on her own, moving her half of the collection to her own new house on the other side of town, where she arranges it as she wants. Ruby’s pleased she’s 'made everything just right' but feels something’s missing and isn’t sure what until Violet unleashes a bold plan to ensure the Mutch sisters 'never had too much of anything' and just enough of each other.... Cartoonlike ink-and-watercolor illustrations use bold outlines, bright colors, and whimsical details to chronicle the Mutch sisters’ amusing journey from fledging collectors to full-fledged hoarders and from separation (traced through a double-page map) to contented reunion." — Kirkus Reviews
