What did you like about the book:  This is part of the Princess Arabella series that contains 4 other titles.  A sweet colorful story of an only child wishing for a brother or sister.   She believes it would be nicer to have someone to play with, like a little sister, until she visits with a friend and isn’t so sure.  Then she thinks maybe a brother would be better until she plays with Princess Ling and her three little brothers and thinks to herself that maybe she should ask for a big sister instead.  Then she decides no big sister and maybe being an only child is pretty good. Then one morning, her dad wakes her up to see that she now has a new baby brother and baby sister- she is a big sister now!
