In this newest series from Cynthia Rylant, three cousins, Lily, Tess, and Rosie, live with their Aunt Lucy while their parents are away. A LITTLE SHOPPING takes them to the Olde Craft Shoppe to buy furniture and other items for the dollhouse they're making. In this cheerful, somewhat traditional story, Suzanne Toren sets a light, happy tone as the girls discuss their project. Toren gives each girl her own distinct voice: Lily speaks softly in thoughtful, considered tones; Tess, who wants to be an actress, speaks in a matter-of-fact yet flamboyant voice; Rosie is easygoing and content. Aunt Lucy, her boyfriend, and other adult characters also have distinct voices. Although light in plot, the enthusiastic narration manages to bring the story to life. W.L.S.
