Kids' Reviews


I love Sugar and Spite because Jolina’s story is very common to us kids. But aside from Jolina and Claudine’s friendship, the book also talks about our friendship with our pets. The book also talks about love and forgiveness. I can’t wait to share this with my friends. Tita Gail did it again!

"Awesome story! We really love how Jolina and Claudine were able to teach us how to get along with each other. Good job, Tita Gail! Can’t wait to read their next adventure! P.S. We love that you named the pet cat, ‘Winter!’ ♥"
