    Emily and Alex are twins. Even though they look the same, they’re as different as brothers and sisters can be.

    Plain and Fancy

    Emily and Alex are twins. They have the same birthday. They have the same last name. But somehow, Emily and Alex are also different—as different as brothers and sisters can be. One likes to be inside, while the other likes to be outside. One likes dots and the other likes stripes. One likes to be plain, and one likes to be fancy.

    With so much difference between them, do Emily and Alex have anything in common besides being twins? Well, there might be a few things. They both like many cupcakes rather than none at all. And they both might like to be apart when they’re angry—and to be together again when they’re calm.

    A sweet, simple story about self-expression, Plain and Fancy shows how our differences can be just as important as our similarities. The companion story to Naughty and Nice, Plain and Fancy is illustrated by celebrated French artist Barroux. Written and published by Harriet Ziefert.
