PreSchool-Grade 3-- In Cranberryport, "friends always take care of one another"--as readers of Cranberry Christmas and Cranberry Thanksgiving (both Macmillan, 1980) are well aware. The weeks before Easter find Grandmother, Maggie, and Mr. Whiskers worrying about their friends. Seth the storekeeper, lonely after the death of his wife, threatens to sell the store; Nan and Grandma Gates are ready to give up their farms, but can't find rooms in town. The Devlins put a light face on serious issues, and--in true Cranberryport tradition--all works out for the best. The characteristic watercolors, old-fashioned and familiar in Easter-egg pastels, are well suited to this wholesome, unpretentious tale, and the holiday tie-in will snag young readers. --Marcia Hupp, Mamaroneck Public Library, NY
