This book is about a girl named Rubina and how she got invited to a birthday party, her sister noticed she was invited and was eagerly waiting to attend the party too. Rubina was very embarrassed to ask her friend if her sister can come too. Although she learned to overcome her fears. There is more to this book, although you should buy or borrow it to read the rest. This is a very funny siblings fight. But when Rubina's sister Sana was invited to another party, things also didn't go as planned, when her younger sister also wanted to come along! The big red lollipop was another thing that causes a fuss, but there is more to this book which wasn't mentioned, so read it to find out more. I personally love this book you should definitely read it as soon as possible. Rating 5/5

My kids love this book. It's funny and very relatable for children, with a sweet ending.

Lovely story and illustrations! It looks at a relationship between sisters, and also touches on assimilation as the main sister wants to fit in with her schoolmates.

A real story for real kids. No gimmicks; no adult winks and nods. Gripping plot a kid, especially siblings, especially girls, will "get." An admirable, true-to-life heroine worth "knowing." Depth. A book that doesn't try to be a video game or Saturday morning cartoon. A "giving" book. Perfect ending. A book that is satisfied to be a "book." A beautiful book. A "book."

Wonderful book and illustration. I could relate to such instances in my life growing up. I took my sister to a bunch of birthday parties. :)

Excellent children's book covering sibling rivalry and the deep love just below the ugly layer of jealousy and petty differences that plague all families on a daily basis. I teared up at the end but I may just need to adjust my meds! :)
