The Costume Copycat

Pictures by Anne Wilsdorf

“Just once, Angela wants to outshine her big sister, Bernadette, on Halloween. But Bernadette always has the best costume. What can Angela do? Maybe wearing Bernadette’s costume from the year before will make Angela stand out… But it is not until Angela decides to use her own imagination that she discovers how to really sparkle.”

“A wise and winning story about sisterly rivalry and affection.”

“Filled with gentle humor, this is a fun, non-preachy story about the challenges of being a younger sibling. Use it as a holiday selection or when exploring family relationships.”
School Library Journal
