Overview

Meet the
Cobble Street Cousins

Lily, who wants to be a poet

Tess, who wants to be a Broadway star

Rosie, who wants a little cottage with flowers by the door

It's spring on Cobble Street, and Lily has a great idea — the Cobble Street Cousins' own newspaper! Soon the very first edition of The Cobble Street Courier is hot off the presses, with a poem by Lily, Tess's favorite jokes, and Rosie's yummy recipe for shortbread — even an interview with Aunt Lucy's boyfriend, Michael. Now it's time to deliver the paper to all the cousins' old friends on Cobble Street — and a couple of new ones!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books The charming stories are going to make second- and third-grade girls blissfully happy.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4Two more beginning chapter-book series titles that young girls will adore. Three nine-year-old cousinsTess, Lily, and Rosielive with their Aunt Lucy while their parents tour with a ballet company. In Some Good News, the girls create a local newspaper; in Special Gifts, they learn to sew. The simple plots rise and fall gently with enough action and activity to interest beginning readers. These are lighthearted stories with happy endings. The minutely detailed pencil-and-watercolor artwork sprinkled throughout the books reveals the unique personalities of the girls and creates a wonderfully serene setting. Readers are going to wish they, too, lived on Cobble Street. Good alternatives to The American Girls series (Pleasant Company).Sarah ONeal, Salt Lake County Library System, UT Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
