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.

"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

Welcome to my Amazon Author Page! I am honored you stopped by. I'm the author of over forty books so far, most of them novels for young readers and middle readers. Almost all of them can be called "realistic fiction," but they are always funny, too - just the way real life so often is!

My most recent series for Viking Children's Books are THE EMMA BOOKS: Only Emma, Super Emma, Excellent Emma, and three others, for kids 7 - 10, and THE ELLRAY JAKES BOOKS: EllRay Jakes is Not a Chicken!, EllRay Jakes is Magic!, my most recent book, EllRay Jakes the Recess King!, and five others-with the last one, EllRay Jakes Stands Tall! coming out soon. These are from Viking too, and are also for kids ages 7 - 10.

EllRay's younger sister Alfie has her own series coming, too, between 2016 - 2018. This series takes place three years after the last EllRay book, making Alfie Jakes seven years old when the first book begins - and her big brother EllRay eleven years old. And tall!

An interesting thing about these most recent series - THE EMMA BOOKS and THE ELLRAY JAKES BOOKS - is that all fifteen of them feature the same kids in the same third grade class! Writing the books was like dong a giant puzzle, in a way. But the stories are told from either Emma's or EllRay's point of view, of course.

While I am not able to do school visits at this time, I am always available through my new website - - and will be happy to answer your questions and read what you have to say. I love my mail! Thanks again for visiting my page, and keep reading.

A Kid's Review on May 10, 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.
