Maple & Willow Together by Lori Nichols


Maple & Willow Together by Lori Nichols

This is a joyful tale of two imaginative sisters who are also best friends - most of the time. Maple and Willow do everything together. They love playing outside throughout the whole year, welcoming the sun, rain, leaves, and snow. But it's not always sunshine and rainbows, because sometimes big sisters can be bossy - and sometimes little sisters can be frustrating-and even the best of friends need a break from each least until they can no longer bear to be apart.


* Raw, real, and easily imagined by any child who's finally had enough from a close friend, classmate, sister, brother (or even mommy or daddy). Sisterly love abides, of course. . . . Strong sibling bonds are perfectly described through spare language and artwork as lush as a forest of maple and willow trees. Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW * Paean to sisterhood. . . . The story is delightfully recognizable, especially to sisters, and is matched by marvelous pencil artwork . . . Nichols is clever enough to build the sisters

, anger, and the happiness that comes with making up. Booklist, STARRED REVIEW
