In this second book of the series, Lily and Trooper greet summer with a big ""Hooray!"" They jump on a bicycle and head for the beach, where they catch a fish. In a meadow they pick wildflowers and unwittingly attract a swarm of bees, sending them into a pond for shelter. By day's end they are so tired they stretch out on top of the covers and fall fast asleep.

Editorial Reviews

Jodee Taylor
In Lily and Trooper's Summer, the pictures are the sunshine of the book, with only one sentence on each page. They are bright and color-packed with fun and they help portray Lily as a fun-lovin' kid who delights in all around her. Her enthusiasm is quite contagious.

Lily is on her way to the beach with her dog, Trotter. This day of adventure will include basking in the sun, collecting starfish, picking flowers and riding her two-wheeler. The day is filled with simple pleasures that will be familiar to young readers. The bright, colorful illustrations of Lily and Trooper playing outside will introduce concepts of exercise and outdoor activities. Text of less than 10 words per page makes this an ideal gift for the beginning reader, and for the preschool classroom.
School Library Journal
PreS-In the first title, Lily and her dog, Trooper, spend a spring day picnicking and making the acquaintance of a cow, a few sheep, some pigs, and a family of ducks. Several mishaps, including landing in a mud puddle, require them to clean up three times before bedtime. In the second book, the pair go to the beach, pick flowers, and play ball. Each single-page illustration has one line of text beneath it, often only single-word exclamations. The vibrant artwork reveals objects and figures outlined in black in front of swirling, flowing backgrounds of thickly applied paint. The bright colors will attract children but they may be put off by the uneven, choppy wording. These books, which were originally published in the Netherlands, read more like a series of vignettes than stories and have the tone of an album with brief descriptive phrases for each picture. For more entertaining seasonal books about a child and beloved pet, turn to Cynthia Rylant's Henry and Mudge in Puddle Trouble (S & S, 1996) and Henry and Mudge in the Green Time (Bradbury, 1987).-Maryann H.
