Super-Completely and Totally the Messiest

Super-Completely and Totally the Messiest

by Judith Viorst Illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser

It's hard being practically perfect and having the world's messiest younger sister. Big sister is constantly urging Sophie to be neat— "like me, Olivia" — but whether at home, at school, trick-or-treating on Halloween, or even at the beach, Sophie is a disaster. Still, as big brother, Jake, and their parents keep reminding Olivia, Sophie does have some redeeming qualities.

Sophie joins the legendary Alexander as super-completely and totally one of Judith Viorst's most irresistible characters ever.
