Illustrations enhance the sweet girls’ interactions. . . . Fall into this lovely addition as sisters adjust to the excitement and the changes of a new year ahead.”—School Library Journal“The playful pastel-and-line artwork, with backgrounds of autumnal trees, is as adorable as ever. . . . The happy ending is expected—sisterhood forever!—but is satisfying nonetheless.”—Booklist
