Description
Jake is so embarrassed by a reading circle blunder, he vows never to speak in class again, in this fourth collection of stories from the Pain and the Great One, while Abigail believes she can no longer trust one of her best friends. And on the perfect snow day, who is it who rescues Jake when someone jumps on him and washes his face in snow? Finally, Jake and Abigail decide to plan a birthday party to celebrate the date when their cat Fluzzy first became part of their family—but only Fluzzy knows what really happened on that dark and stormy night a year ago. The book is part of a series for readers 6 to 8 from the creator of Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret and the Fudge books, with chapter-like short stories alternately told by siblings Jacob (dubbed "the Pain" by his older sister Abigail) and Abigail (nicknamed "the Great One" by Jacob, because "she thinks she's so great").

"The brother and sister also contend with obnoxious cousins when they visit their curmudgeonly Uncle Phil and with mean Madison Purdy when they have a snow day. Like the previous volumes, this book concludes with a chapter from the family cat, Fluzzy. Stevenson's ink sketches are interspersed throughout the chapters and add detail to the stories. The situations are believable, and many readers will relate to the squabbles between the siblings and their school experiences."—School Library Journal
