Summary
Zelda and Ivy and the Boy Next Door
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 5^-8. Those true-to-life little fox sisters Zelda and Ivy return, and now a boy has moved in next door. The first time Eugene comes over, Zelda is playing paleontologist. Ivy (in the sandbox) is the fossil Zelda's digging up. Eugene is immediately smitten with Zelda, but she plays him like a guitar, until finally he stops asking Zelda to marry him and asks Ivy instead. In the second vignette, Ivy worms her way into a game of pirates, and the third chapter is a tender episode involving the sisters camping out in the backyard. Kids may be puzzled why all the stories don't include Eugene (who, truth be told, is sort of a wimp), but that shouldn't diminish their enjoyment of this warm, funny book. The text is well integrated with the sturdy artwork, which ranges in design from full-page pictures to a row of smaller boxed art. The pictures display a naive charm and simplicity that belie the obvious skill involved in their execution. Delightfully droll and at the same time awfully sweet. --Ilene Cooper"
