From School Library Journal
Grade 2-4Two more beginning chapter-book series titles that young girls will adore. Three nine-year-old cousinsTess, Lily, and Rosielive with their Aunt Lucy while their parents tour with a ballet company. In Some Good News, the girls create a local newspaper; in Special Gifts, they learn to sew. The simple plots rise and fall gently with enough action and activity to interest beginning readers. These are lighthearted stories with happy endings. The minutely detailed pencil-and-watercolor artwork sprinkled throughout the books reveals the unique personalities of the girls and creates a wonderfully serene setting. Readers are going to wish they, too, lived on Cobble Street. Good alternatives to The American Girls series (Pleasant Company).Sarah ONeal, Salt Lake County Library System, UT
