Norton Juster - Sourpuss and Sweetie Pie

Sourpuss and Sweetie Pie

Author: Norton Juster; Illustrator: Chris Raschka

  • AGES 4 - 7 
  • Genre Fiction
The sequel to The Hello Goodbye Window, winner of the 2006 Caldecott Medal.
Is it Sourpuss or Sweetie Pie? That's the question whenever Nanna and Poppy are treated to a visit from their granddaughter. Most of the time she's Sweetie Pie, some of the time she's Sourpuss, and then there are those occasions when she's both at once. You can never be sure which one it will be. Happy and sad, joyful and furious, delighted and dejected, loving and impossible. She can change in the blink of an eye!
Praise for Sourpuss and Sweetie Pie: * "This welcome sequel to the Caldecott Medal title The Hello, Goodbye Window knowingly describes a child's conflicting personalities. Both the sunny moments and the tantrums will ring true for readers of any age. Sweetie Pie's balletic, floaty postures contrast with Sourpuss's dramatic scowls and defiant stances; the two personas appear virtually side by side for maximum effect. A keeper." — Publishers Weekly, starred review
