Editorial Reviews

“The magical andeveryday reside comfortably together on Neighborhood Street and make it well worth the visit.”—Booklist "A warm, triumphant book that will be wonderful to share with a group or in a more cozy situation."—School Library Journal"Greenfield's poems have a peaceful tone that is perfectly matched in Gilchrist's gentle, dreamy paintings, where brown skins glow with a warm light against soft-focus backgrounds of shadowed walls and deep, starry sky. A winning combination." —Kirkus Reviews
