They invite readers to join in their adventures and projects in this engaging chapter book series. Cynthia Rylant creates bold and good-natured heroines readers are sure to love. Wendy Anderson Halperin’s beautiful illustrations bring the characters and their stories to life for readers. The Cobble Street Cousins: A Little Shopping follows the cousins as they create a dollhouse for Aunt Lucy in the shape of her flower shop and save an escaped parrot along the way.
