Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Three creative cousins bring can-do spirit and goodhearted fun to this new chapter book series from Newbery Medalist Rylant. Nine-year-olds Lily, Rosie and Tess are bunking with their Aunt Lucy for a whole year while their parents--ballet dancers all--tour the world. They've made a cozy haven in Aunt Lucy's attic where they can each enjoy their favorite pursuits and dream up fun things to entertain themselves. Starting a cookie company is the first order of business in In Aunt Lucy's Kitchen, and the girls manage to play match-maker for Aunt Lucy and befriend a 90-year-old neighbor on her birthday while delivering batches of cinnamon crinkles. And in A Little Shopping the girls show their flair for arts and crafts when they whip up something special for Aunt Lucy. Rylant's confident and sweet-natured heroines are the kind of girls-next-door that anyone would want to know better. Her chipper tone and succinct, yet open-ended stories will encourage her target readership to come up with their own creative projects. Halperin's (Once Upon a Company) generous sprinkling of cozy, pale-hued pencil-and-watercolor illustrations throughout capture a warm family dynamic and provide energetic expressions for a friendly cast. Ages 7-10. (Oct.)
Children's Literature - Joan Carris
Here's the first in a new Rylant series about "The Cobble Street Cousins." The book's small size and exquisite, mini-illustrations are appropriate for little, old-fashioned girls age 7 to 9, but the story itself seems awfully bland. Lily, Tess, and Rosie-the homebody of the three-are about to enter 4th grade when their parents leave for a year's tour with their ballet company. So, the girls move in with their Aunt Lucy, who owns a flower shop and has a delightfully old-fashioned house, complete with attic. Echoes of Alcott are everywhere, except no tears and no troubles. The girls bake cookies, sell cookies, and find a boyfriend for Aunt Lucy. It's okay for a few girls perhaps, but most will want more main dish to go with all this dessert.
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

    Quick read!

    My daughter enjoyed this book as a quick read with not too many details. Very sweet short and simple. We will read the next one in the series just to see what happens to these girls. If you need a little break from all the big chapter books this is a cute one.
