She Yelled. I Screamed… She Pulled my Hair! by Tracy Leshay chosen as Medalist Winner in the Children's Picture Books category of the 2015 New Apple Book Awards for Excellence in Independent Publishing.

Book Synopsis
Phoebe is determined to get along with her little sister Audrey.  It’s a mean hot summer though; temperatures and tempers are running high.  Each time Phoebe asks Audrey to share, She Yelled.  I Screamed…She Pulled my Hair!  Feeling helpless, Phoebe wishes her sister would share and is surprised and relieved when an enchanted tree lady answers her call.  She offers Phoebe a sharing spell that involves giving Audrey a magical leaf with a kiss.  Unbeknownst to Phoebe, it will take many leaves, many kisses, and many seasons for the sisters to get along.  In the end, Phoebe will learn persistence and patience, and Audrey, through repetition, will finally learn how to share.  Told in rhyme and photographically illustrated for ages 3-8.
