Whatever Happened to My Sister

By Simona Ciraolo
Illustrated by Simona Ciraolo

“I’ve had my suspicions for a while. But now I know the truth. Someone has replaced my sister with a girl that looks a lot like her...”

And so a young girl sets out to find out exactly what happened to her sister. Who is this new sister? Why does she never want to play anymore? For anyone who has ever felt left behind, Simona Ciraolo, paints a touchingly sweet portrayal of the transience of childhood and how adolescence and growing up can be a truly mystifying experience.

  • Simona is a recent graduate from the highly esteemed MA in Children’s Book Ilustration at Cambridge School of Art
  • Her work won her the Sebastian Walker award in 2013
  • Perfect for all ages, especially for younger siblings who feel left behind
