About the Book



Nature-loving sisters Maple and Willow smooth over a rough patch in their friendship in their own unique way.



Book Synopsis



Celebrating imagination and inventive play, Lori Nichols' follow-up to Maple perfectly captures the dynamics of siblings and their ability to figure things out on their own and find a way to meet halfway.

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 other . . . at least until they can no longer bear to be apart.



Review Quotes




* "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' subtle differences, so their breakup comes from somewhere. Children will feel all that the girls do: love, anger, and the happiness that comes with making up. -- Booklist, STARRED REVIEW

Many days you can find Lori and her family looking for heart rocks, digging for worms, or speaking in pig latin. Ometimesay eythay ightfay ootay.
