Nico is coming over to play, but Sally doesn't want him to touch her toy squirrel. Or her train. Not her parking garage either. Sally's mom said to put the things she doesn't want to share in the wardrobe. As it turns out, there are quite a lot of things Sally doesn't want to share--including her mom.
This fresh and funny approach to sharing shows just how complicated hiding all the things you love can be. In the end, it might be easier to give sharing a try. Maybe.
“Kids will find the whole concept a hoot and will come away understanding that greed isn’t actually that good….A paean to the realization that while sharing may be caring, it’s also more fun!” -Kirkus Reviews

"Persson skilfully eschews didacticism, allowing the story to show rather than tell why Sally’s hoarding inclinations are less than ideal. The formatting of many pages will require readers to rotate the book, lending the read a dynamic energy that pairs well with the text. Kids will find the whole concept a hoot and will come away understanding that greed isn’t actually that good."- Kirkus Reviews
"A very funny book about a very common situation."- CBCA Reading Time
"Dealing with a perennial problem, that of keeping things for themselves, the book will instantly appeal to adults and teachers, older kids and younger, for whom sharing is a concern within their household or classroom." - ReadPlus
