Synopsis

Maple & Willow Apart by Lori Nichols

Maple and Willow have always been inseparable. So what happens when Maple starts school, leaving little sister Willow behind? At first, they each put on their bravest face. Maple regaling Willow with a breathless rundown of her day, and Willow responding with tales of her own adventures with a mysterious new friend but the truth is, they miss each other. Willow feels left behind and lonely without Maple and Maple worries that Willow has replaced her with another friend. Fortunately, the sisters eventually realise that the missing is mutual, and come up with a creative solution that will let them feel connected even when they are apart.

. . . [and] keep the focus on the girls and their relationship. . . . Ideal for sharing with sibling pairs about to be parted by the first day of school. --Kirkus Reviews, starred review Emphasizes the change of seasons through an accessible child-centered perspective. . . . Illustrations enhance the sweet girls

. . . . Fall into this lovely addition as sisters adjust to the excitement and the changes of a new year ahead. --School Library Journal

The playful pastel-and-line artwork, with backgrounds of autumnal trees, is as adorable as ever. . . . The happy ending is expected--sisterhood forever!--but is satisfying nonetheless. --Booklist
