Somehow I discovered this book in paperback when my (now) 30-year-old son was preschool age. I read the book to him, to his sister who is nine years younger, and to many children with whom I have worked in public school as a speech language pathologist. Finally I gave the well-worn book to my son because he is now a father. It's guaranteed to warm a child's heart. Sister Brute has no one to love until she gets an "ugly kicking dog" and a doll made from a stone. Then she discovers that there are other people to love.

I used to read this book to my son and to my nieces. Unfortunately, I can no longer find it (sigh!) This was such a sweet story: Sister Brute meets a dog in the woods who wears hard boots, kicks her and begs to be loved! Over time, Both Sister Brute, her Family and the kicking dog learn a lesson about Love. I would love to buy a copy of this book, but $30 for one book is out of my league.

This book is funny and charming for all ages. Children will enjoy the story and illustrations. Adults will be in awe of the twisted logic of the protagonist. Everyone to whom I've ever recommended this book has fallen in love with it! I so wish it were still available.

Idk how I got the book but I've had it since I was a child. Sister Brute is my favorite book ever & so many people don't know it exists. My dad & I used to laugh about the hob-nailed boot wearing dog who would kick her because he wanted her to love him. I wish I could find another copy so I could gift it to my friend for her new baby. I treasure mine too much too much to let it go.
