Author(s): Anthony Browne
Once upon a time there lived a brother and a sister who were not at all alike. They fought and argued constantly. One morning they discover a tunnel, which changes them forever. When they return to the real world, it is with acceptance of each other.
"* "Steeped in as much symbolism as you dare extract... A fascinating book that will afford hours of imaginative unravelling." The Guardian * "A haunting, strange story with the feel of a Brothers Grimm tale. It will say a great deal to any child with brothers or sisters, and the pictures are - naturally - quite superb." Practical Parenting"
