|From The Publisher*||A playful look at sisterhood and honoring differences when havingsome things in common doesn't mean havingeverything in common.|
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.

|Review Quote*||"Brown's signature ink-line-and-watercolor illustrations, in a clean and clear style, are enjoyable and provide details to spot and motifs to follow, and the many interesting words likecrinoline, bouffant, glockenspiel, andspittoonmake it feel idiosyncratically homey."-Booklist|
