Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 3-5-When Masha Sweet wakes up with flowers stuck in her hair and her head glued to a pillow, she knows her sister, Sunny, aka the evil genius, is to blame. Because there isn't enough time to get the glue out of her hair before school, Masha's mom lets her stay home. In addition to dealing with her super-smart, super-annoying younger sister, fifth-grader Masha is having a hard time making friends at her new school following her parents' divorce, so she is more than willing to skip class. Masha soon discovers her neighbor, Mrs. Song, has fallen off her bicycle in front of the house. Sunny is there moments later, and when the paramedics arrive, the girls ride along in the ambulance. At the hospital, high jinks prevail as Masha's arm is mistakenly put in a cast and Sunny gets her in all kinds of trouble. When Masha meets some of the kids at the hospital, she discovers how lucky she really is, even if her sister drives her crazy. While some of the events that take place in the hospital are hard to believe, children will be able to suspend disbelief. Although the main character is in fifth grade, this book will find fans among younger readers. Black-and-white illustrations contribute to the humor in this tale of sisterly adventures.-Sarah Polace, Cuyahoga Public Library System, OHα(c) Copyright 2013.

Review

"If you love Beezus and Ramona...You know that having a little sister whose purpose in life is to annoy you is hard... and hilarious. In Sunny Sweet Is So NOT Sorry, Jennifer Ann Mann balances the characters' worries (being new at school, their parents' divorce) with humor." - Redbook 

"Debut novelist Mann hits the sweet spot for lower middle-grade realistic stories, keeping company with the masters--Clements, Blume, and Cleary.  Long-suffering Masha Sweet has an evil genius for a younger sister, six-year-old Sunny: "She was born brilliant...she'll invent some poisonous gas that will snuff out the sun and freeze us all into human Popsicles, but until that time, she seems perfectly content to practice her evil schemes on me."  Your young humor fans will be thrilled to learn this is a start of series...."  Jill M. Barton, MLIS, Collection Development, Ingram Library Services

"This book is SUPER cute. I read it to my girls and they loved it. My oldest said that she wished there was a movie about Sunny and Masha Sweet! I would gladly recommend this book to young boys and girls. It shows the ups and downs involved with having a sibling, while making you smile through the whole ordeal." Books For Kids

"For kids with a zany sense of humor, Sunny Sweet is So Not Sorry will be a real treat. From beginning to end, this book is unpredictable, with silly surprises lurking in every chapter. Girls who have pesky younger siblings will relate all too well to Masha's frustrations with Sunny's mischievous behavior, but they might also appreciate their own sisters that much more when they realize how much worse their situations could be!" Katie Fitzgerald, Secrets and Sharing Soda

"There were so many great characters in this book and a lot of lessons for the young readers to enjoy. I'm looking forward to what sort of trouble Masha and Sunny will be getting into next." The Paperback Princess

I really loved the relationship between Masha and Sunny because even though they were terrible to one another, they really did love each other. I also loved that this book is now going to be a series, and that they are going to be even more stories where Sunny is awful to Masha but tries to make it right in the end. I think that this is a super cute and quick read, and is great for any one with siblings boy or girl.

There were so many great characters in this book and a lot of lessons for the young readers to enjoy. I'm looking forward to what sort of trouble Masha and Sunny will be getting into next.

Ever had a younger sibling you loved to hate? Enter Sunny Sweet--six years old, eternally blameless, and an evil genius to boot. Sunny's great brain gets her into trouble more often than not, and who better to take the brunt of her exploits than big sister Masha? It's not as if Masha hasn't got enough on her plate, what with trying to make friends at school and dealing with her parents' breakup. What begins as a Beverly Cleary-esque tale morphs into its own peculiar tale as author Jennifer Ann Mann takes us out of the usual world of sibling rivalry and twists the story a bit further. To what lengths will Masha go to remove the flowers her sister has superglued into her hair? Who will she meet along the way? This funny and moving story manages to explore the bonds of sisterhood, the importance of adult-child friendships, the reality of childhood illness, and even a fleeting glimpse of a budding crush, all in under 200 pages. As disparate as these themes sound, Mann carries them off in an inevitable chain of events that strings the reader effortlessly along from page to page. The characters shine; the writing is wry and funny; and Masha's voice is spot on. I can't imagine anyone not falling in love with the Sweet girls--and I can't wait to see what they do next!

This book is SUPER cute. I read it to my girls and they loved it. My oldest said that she wished there was a movie about Sunny and Masha Sweet!

Masha is an adorable character that has to put up with and suffer through the "experiments" of her evil genius of a younger sister. There were several times throughout the book that I laughed out loud. Sunny keeps making life more and more miserable for poor Masha, yet Masha proves to be a worthwhile role model as she continues to forgive and express love for her sister.

I would gladly recommend this book to young boys and girls. It shows the ups and downs involved with having a sibling, while making you smile through the whole ordeal. And, it also made me grateful that I did NOT have a sibling like Sunny, because I know I wouldn't have been as forgiving as Masha.

Illustrations: There are approximately 2-3 black and white illustrations per chapter. They give just enough to enhance the story without being too distracting. It's also nice for younger readers to have a visual aid.

Masha never worried about going to bed with an evil genius living in the same house, AKA her younger sister, Sonny, until she woke up one morning with plastic flowers glued to her head.

Sonny is a sweet, innocent, curious child who just happens to be a brilliant, budding scientist. And what would a scientist be without experiments? And every experiment needs a guinea pig or in this case, her older sister, Masha.

But Masha is tired of being a science experiment. What she'd like is for people to remember her name. She is Masha, not Marsha. It's hard enough being the new girl in school and showing up with a bouquet of flowers cemented to the top of her head will not make it any easier. Sunny will be so sorry for what she did!

As they look for ways to loosen the glue, Masha's day goes from bad to worse. She quickly ends up bruised with a black eye, a not-so-busted arm with an orange cast and open cuts on her head. By the time their zany adventure is over, Sonny will have been lost several times sending Masha on a hunt for her while evading the people looking for Masha.

Sunny Sweet Is So Not Sorry by Jennifer Ann Mann is a funny and charming story of two sisters and their adventure that ends with a better understanding between them. But don't relax just yet, Masha, Sonny is so not done with her human experiments!

Jennifer Mann's debut middle grade novel is a fun introduction to Masha Sweet and her sister, Sunny. Sunny is a child genius, much to the horror of her older sister, Masha. Masha is usually the victim of Sunny's experiments, which Sunny always seems to get away with. This time, Sunny has gone too far by using a super-strength glue to affix flowers into Masha's hair. A hilarious series of events follows.
Masha has a unique voice for a middle schooler, and one that makes the reader feel both her love and disdain for her little sister. Middle school readers will likely enjoy the crazy adventure the sisters go on at the hospital, although as an adult I found myself wondering about how realistic certain events really were.

This was a quick read, and I think most pre-teen girls would love it. There was also a little bit of age-appropriate romance, and this issues of divorce and fitting in with peers were touched on. This should be a fun series to follow in the coming years.
