Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Publishers Weekly Rylant's confident and sweet-natured girls are the kind of girls-next-door that anyone would want to know better.

The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books The charming...stories are going to make second and third grade girls blissfully happy.

Children's Literature - Joan Carris
In Book 2 of "The Cobble Street Cousins," the cousins Lily, Tess, and Rosie build a model of Aunt Lucy's flower shop. Assisted by Aunt Lucy's boyfriend, Michael, who's studying to be a botanist, the girls shop for treasures with which to adorn the dollhouse model, and go to the ice cream shop a few times. This is another sweet, sweet story about perfectly behaved children who apparently don't miss their parents, who are on a long tour with their ballet company. Although the abundant art is absolutely perfect, I honestly believe kids want more plot and more character development than they're going to find here.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4--Nine-year-old cousins Lily, Rosie, and Tess are roommates in their aunt's home while their parents tour with a ballet company for a year. In A Little Shopping, the girls build a dollhouse replica of their aunt's flower shop to surprise her. In Aunt Lucy's Kitchen tells how the cousins decide to form a cookie company and meet a number of people in the community during their brief business adventure. Subplots involve playing cupid between their aunt and a customer and putting on a theatrical show for newfound friends. These titles fill the gap between easy readers and beginning chapter books. Halperin's soft pencil drawings scattered throughout add detail and just the right touch of fun to the stories. Sweet and refreshing, these books beg for a plate of freshly baked cookies and a comfortable reading chair.--Pam Hopper Webb, Sandpoint Community Christian School, ID
