From Publishers Weekly
When eccentric Lily moves into their neighborhood, best friends Chester and Wilson's routine is disrupted, but the twosome becomes a triumvirate once Lily proves her mettle. In a boxed review, PW said, "Henkes's vision of friendship captures the essence of the childlike." Ages 3-8.

From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 2–Kevin Henkes's charming story (Greenwillow Books, 1988) of two friends who are truly "two peas in a pod" comes to life in this quality production. Chester and Wilson do everything the same way, from cutting sandwiches to playing baseball. Then Lilly, of purple plastic purse fame, moves into the neighborhood. Lilly has her own way of doing things, and Chester and Wilson don't know quite what to make of her until the day she uses one of her disguises to frighten off some misbehaving older boys. Chester and Wilson look at Lilly in a new light, and discover that the three of them have more in common than they previously believed, and that perhaps different ways of doing things are just fine. Narrator Laura Hamilton keeps listeners engaged with her terrific intonation and distinct voice for each character. Background music and sound effects enhance the tale. One side of the recording has page-turn signals to help youngsters read along.–Judy Czarnecki, Chippewa River District Library System, Mt. Pleasant, MI

I also love that Henkes stories are the perfect length to read before bed. Not too long that you almost fall asleep reading or too short that your kids need another. ;)
