In researching comparative titles for a new manuscript I wrote, I came across Lori Nichols books about Maple & Willow. The two sisters relationship rang true and it's a two thumbs up book!
(Aside from having two sisters, the story is *phew!* nothing like what I've been working on)
Title: Maple & Willow Together
Author/Illustrator: Lori Nichols
Publisher: Nancy Paulsen Books (PYRG)
Themes: Siblings, disagreements
Sibling dynamics are unlike any other friendships. It makes it both easier and harder to love each other at times! My sisters and I certainly had our moments of both.
This series began with just Maple, and now Maple and her sibling Willow have a whole series I somehow missed. I will be at the library looking for the others later today!
