Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-3-In this fourth story narrated by first-grader Lily, she is left out when her former friends LaVon and bossy Daisy exclude her. She courts Hilary as a new friend to boss around and to show the others that she is a person to be reckoned with. This plan backfires when Hilary proves to have feelings and a mind of her own. Luckily, and believably, Lily's brother and mother help the child through the rough spots of friendship. Lily is as emotionally sensitive as Ramona and a little less precocious than Junie B. Jones, but with similar misunderstandings and conflicts about life. Warner knows what's important to young children and has a good ear for dialogue. Readers will nod in recognition of Lily's problems with triangular friendships, classroom politics, and the many nuances of Valentine's-card giving.

Review

"Lily's humorous first-person narrative will have great appeal for young children--a charming chapter book that should be a popular choice for reading aloud."--Booklist (on Sweet & Sour Lily)

More About the Author

BIOGRAPHY OF SALLY WARNER

Sally Warner was born in New York City and grew up in Connecticut and California, where her family moved when she was eight years old. She attended public schools in Pasadena. She then received her B.A. degree from Scripps College in Claremont, California, and her B.F.A. and M.F.A. degrees in fine arts from Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles.

Sally Warner worked as an artist (primarily charcoal drawings) for many years, exhibiting her work at galleries, small museums, colleges, and universities across the country. Her drawings are in many private collections. She also taught art education for ten years at Pasadena City College. Her teaching led her to write her first non-fiction book for adults, ENCOURAGING THE ARTIST IN YOUR CHILD, in 1989. This book sold more than 20,000 copies. She still gets mail about another of her non-fiction books for adults, MAKING ROOM FOR MAKING ART (1994).

Sally Warner then began writing fiction for young readers. Her first novel, DOG YEARS (1995), has sold almost 90,000 copies--in Italy! Sally Warner did the cartoons herself.

To date, Sally Warner has had 30 novels published, mostly for ages 8--12. One of her most popular books so far was SORT OF FOREVER (1998, still available through Scholastic Book Club), which has sold close to 250,000 copies! She also writes for younger readers, ages 7-10; the books in her previous funny series for Viking (ONLY EMMA, NOT-SO-WEIRD EMMA, SUPER EMMA, BEST FRIEND EMMA, and EXCELLENT EMMA) have been getting lots of positive attention. Five ELLRAY JAKES books have come out in the last couple of years, and the 6th-ELLRAY JAKES IS MAGIC! will be out in spring, 2014. Three more EllRays are in the works.

Sally Warner and her husband live in Southern California. She has four step-daughters, five step-grandchildren, and two sons who both have active careers in the arts: dance/choreography/teaching, and stereoscopic computer generated imagery for television and movies. For her family, the arts were definitely not a frill!

A Kid's Review on May 11, 2001
Format: Paperback
This is a good book for reading aloud and also for eight year olds because the main charter in this book is a first grader and is written in the first person,Lilly. Something that wasen't too appealing to me was that in the story Lilly's old friend Daisy seems to be perfect in all of the books I've read on Lilly Hill. Sometimes in the arguments that she has with her friends you should have Lilly win. In this book she should have won the argument because she has a hard enought time at home because she shears a room with her mom, her father is in jail fo stealing something, she lives in an appartment in the city, and at school in the book everyone thought that Lilly pushed Daisy on the playground.
