This is author/photographer Tracy Leshay's debut book about sharing.  Written in rhyme, we hear Phoebe tell her humorous taking-turns-tale of woe.  Determined to get along with her little sister Audrey, Phoebe follows the advice of a helpful fairy.  It is a mean-hot summer though, and temperatures and tempers are running high.  Phoebe will need more than a day to make Audrey share.  Time will pass - seasons will change, and until Phoebe and Audrey do magically share, SHE YELLED.  I SCREAMED…SHE PULLED MY HAIR!  In the end, this universal story gets to the heart of how one learns to share.  If you want a turn with the teapot, the car, or the bike, persistence, politeness, and patience will be key.


A print series of Tracy Leshay's daughter's hair inspired this modern-day fairy tale.  Leshay's words provide a learning to share tool but her 35mm pictures create a unique art-book experience.  Phoebe and Audrey resemble your friends - real with real issues - ones that every child experiences.  The visuals make the story enjoyable to eyes of all ages, while the topic and the telling make it just perfect for those ages 3-8.
