Awards for Silly Lilly and the Four Seasons
"Dick and Jane may now pack up their things and leave town for good. In this little marvel of distilled storytelling, five wee seasonal vignettes, starting and ending with spring, place a spry young girl in familiar situations that give free rein to her curiosity and love of action...To know Lilly is to want to know what she has to say."
--Publishers Weekly (starred)
"Enjoy the simple but dynamite graphics from Agnès Rosenstiehl. It's as if Tintin had gone to preschool."
"This graphic-early-reader entry from TOON Books is itself an objet d'art. The slight story, in basic comic-book format, briefly and joyfully bounds through the seasons at the rate of four panels per page...Emergent readers will be drawn to Lilly's ebullient perspective and captivated by the uncluttered layout; the easy lesson on the seasons is a bonus."
"Spunky Lilly dances, skips, and jumps through the pages of this charming book as she explores each season's distinct pleasures, which include springtime in a park, a beach in summer, apple picking in the fall, and snow in the wintertime. With its simple text and illustrations, this comic is perfect for new readers."
--School Library Journal
"Lilly is bold and engaging in both her rounded, childlike appearance and her heartfelt approach to the real world and to her imagined one."
