Lily and Trooper's Summer

Lily and Trooper greet summer with a big "Hooray!" They jump on a bicycle and head for the beach, where they catch a fish. In a meadow they pick wildflowers and unwittingly attract a swarm of bees, sending them into a pond for shelter. By day's end they are so tired they stretch out on top of the covers and fall fast asleep.

A series of four books for toddlers and beginning readers in which a little girl and her puppy discover activities and joys unique to each season.

Reviews

"The artwork is transporting ... It is not simply a visually compelling, exuberant world, but one that readers will revere for its glorious unctuousness."
-Kirkus Reviews

"Young preschoolers will enjoy the cozy mess and silly farce."
-Booklist

"Lily and her black and white dog are quite simply charming characters who are very real in that they make mistakes, fall down, get cold, and get hungry. Theirs is not a charmed life .... Indeed, these two best friends are just like the rest of us which makes them accessible and easy to relate to. Bright, flat paintings full of swirls and splashes of thick color compliment the spare text and young artists will be inspired to try their own hand at creating a Lily and Trooper picture."
-Through the Looking Glass Children's Book Review

"The vibrant artwork reveals objects and figures outlined in black in front of swirling, flowing backgrounds of thickly applied paint."
-School Library Journal
