"Welcome to Cobble Street!"

Meet Lily, Rosie, and Tess, the three heroines of a new series by Newbery Medalist Cynthia Rylant and acclaimed artist Wendy Anderson Halperin.

Lily thinks the three cousins should make a surprise for their Aunt Lucy -- a dollhouse that looks just like Aunt Lucy's flower shop. The cousins get Aunt Lucy's sweetheart, Michael, to help. And then they get busy cutting, painting, gluing, and decorating. And best of all, there's a surprise for Michael too. When the Cobble Street Cousins set their minds to something, it's bound to turn out amazing!
