The Lemon Sisters

A Picture Book by

When the girls with the blue hat, yellow hat, and red hat wake to a world covered in white, they hurry outside to play. What could be more fun than a day spent building a snow house with your sisters? Little do they know it, but their happiness is also warming the lonely heart of a neighbor lady whose own sisters moved away long ago.

Wistful memories of the elderly may not seem the stuff of picture books, but Cheng lightens them and tightens them to the girls' play as Mai-Wyss brings out the shared feelings of fun and delight in her delicate watercolors. Endearing, this will be a place for conversations to start between young and old. - Ilene Cooper

Mai-Wyss's attractive illustrations, done in watercolor, gouache, and collage, are filled with colorful patterns, from woolen knit caps and other items of clothing to bright checkered tablecloths and various interior details. Endpapers featuring a sheet of notebook paper with a rebus recipe for making lemon ices extend the reading experience. Despite the snowy backdrop, this book leaves readers with a warm glow inside. - - Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA
