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 •
The cousins' parents are coming home! Of course Lily, Tess, and Rosie are looking forward to seeing their parents, but they're also sad about leaving their cozy attic room in Aunt Lucy's little blue house on Cobble Street — and each other. So they plan a summer party to welcome their parents back and to cheer themselves up. But it's Aunt Lucy's boyfriend, Michael, whose wonderful surprise makes the party really special.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Cousins Lily, Rosie, and Tess are saddened to learn that their parents will soon return from their European ballet tour. Then the girls must move from their temporary home with Aunt Lucy back to their respective families. To stave off their sorrow, Aunt Lucy helps them look ahead to future visits and family reunions. For the present, they focus on a party to celebrate the parents' return. The cousins brainstorm, and each one contributes to the gathering in her own way. Aunt Lucy's surprise engagement ensures that the girls and their families will reunite in a few months. Rylant's flowing text is infused with a light touch of emotion, humor, and charm. Halperin's black-and-white pencil-and-watercolor drawings are filled with dainty details and expressive faces. The images are thoughtfully placed on every page and provide contextual picture clues and a charming visual break from the text.-Laura Scott, Baldwin Public Library, Birmingham, MI Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

My 7 year old daughter and I love reading books about 3 girls. She is one of three sisters. This is our newest find. And this is super easy and fast to read.
