Perfect for the 5-10 crowd Extraordinary Ernie and Marvelous Maud will appeal to kids who love superheroes or graphic novels. The Middle Sheep, the second book in this series deals very carefully (no hitting you over the head moments of clarity) with sibling rivalry and the importance of both speaking truth and listening carefully.
