There once were seven sisters who lived in their own homes up in the trees. They each liked their own space and all enjoyed different hobbies, from playing musical instruments to gymnastics, and writing. Some loved the noise, some liked it quiet. Some were early birds whilst others liked to get out of bed late.
One day a new tree appeared and the girls were so excited, they each wanted to build a new home within it, but they also didn’t want their sisters with them. They fought and argued but none would back down. Can these sisters come to a compromise or have they ruined their bond forever?
The story is very charming and intriguing, especially as seven young girls are living alone in a forest, each in their own homes, they do have an aunt who lives nearby. I loved how each of the girls was very different from each other and how they all liked different things, their personalities certainly shone from the pages.
The plot was one of love and the girls being shown that they needed each other and how to work things out amicably. The book did feel like it took a little too long to get to the point, however, it is enjoyable and the illustrations that adorn each page are beautiful to look at and they bring the story to life, so I didn’t mind too much.
Seven Sisters is a picture book, but one for older children as there is a lot of text on each page. The story is different, unique, and entertaining. There are a few good messages throughout that come across strongly. This is a book that will hopefully speak to children, especially those with annoying siblings!
