Susie & Christina are sisters: Sis = Susie (big sister) & Chrys = Christina (little sister). They love hilarity, silliness, and laughing at each other. Much to Susie’s annoyance, Christina has always been better at drawing than her, even though Susie loathed that fact immensely. So, naturally - Susie writes the words and Christina draws the pictures. Together they make art in the form of books, and with enough time, their houses will burst with Sis&Chrys books. The illustrations in this book were all hand-cut out of cardboard, scrapbook, and tissue paper. Many things were needed to accomplish such a tedious feat: the tinniest of scissors, the steadiest of hands, and unending perseverance.
