Roslyn Schwartz has lived in many places, including London, Paris, and San Francisco; she currently resides in Montreal. Roslyn is the author and illustrator of the first six popular "Mole Sisters" books as well as a new picture book for toddlers, "Yo Baby!." She has also worked on animated films.
The Mole Sisters resurface in two new tales by Roslyn Schwartz. In The Mole Sisters and the Moonlit Night, the siblings wish upon a star and land on the moon. The pair pursues something special in The Mole Sisters and the Blue Egg, but they don't know what it is until they find it. (Nov.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
From the very opening line, the optimism of the sisters is readily
apparent. The positive mood and upbeat language continue throughout
the short stories. The characters are likeable because they are
confident yet caring... The series is definitely geared to young
readers. The small size of the books (6" x 6") and the even tinier
illustrations (3" x 2.5") make them far better suited for lap
reading than group story-times. Minimal text is used on each page
(sometimes a single word), and the action moves very quickly.
Schwartz's illustrations actually tell the tale. The blended
colours and many details in her drawings are very appealing.
Preschoolers will enjoy these mini-adventures. The stories end on a
positive note, emphasizing their message that life is wonderful
when shared with a friend. Recommended.--Lisa Sykes"Canadian
