The Pain and the Great One: Saturday Stories is a fun bind-up of the first two books in the series - Soupy Saturdays and Cool Zone. In these hilarious and heart-warming young-fiction stories, Judy Blume perfectly captures what it's like to grow up with a brother or a sister, with gorgeous illustrations by Kate Pankhurst. Jake ('The Pain') and Abigail ('The Great One') may be brother and sister, but they don't always see eye to eye. Abigail thinks that Jake is a massive pain while Jake thinks that Abigail thinks she is sooo great. Whether they are riding bikes, getting their hair cut or throwing parties, there's always something for them to argue about. But despite these little disagreements, this pair are always there for each other, sharing in the fun! The second two books in the series are also available as a bind-up, The Pain and the Great One: Go Places.
