Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lily and the Purple Plastic Purse Without a doubt, one of the best children's book I have had the pleasure of reading to my children. Honest, funny, and easy to relate to. Kevin Henkes truly captured the mind and feelings of a young Lily. I have recommended this title to all my friends with children as this is a 'must have' for all parents. I am now eager to discover more of the author's stories in hopes that they will be as equally pleasing as the lovable Lily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hooray for Lilly Lilly is my favourite story book character! She's bossy, self-centered, clever, witty and full of "nifty disguises". Henkes is able to draw characters that remind us of the pure joy of childhood. I anxiously await the further adventures of Lilly!

Editorial Reviews

“In all of children’s literature there is just a handful of characters we think of as family—Madeline, Winnie-the-Pooh, and Charlotte come to mind—and when this young generation is old enough to reflect on the ones it loved, Lilly will probably lead the pack.”
