Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Laura McGee Kvasnosky's newest trio of stories is an entertaining and genuine look at the ups and downs of sisterhood.

The fabulous fox sisters return in three fresh, funny stories. This time around, Zelda and Ivy combat the injustice of cucumber sandwiches for lunch, decide what to leave the children of the future in their time capsule, and attempt to solve Zelda's writer's block, all to the amusement of both new and returning fans.

Review:

"Outraged that their father has made cucumber sandwiches again, the siblings first introduced in Zelda and Ivy (in a starred review, PW wrote, 'Rare for a book about siblings, its sympathies reach out to readers regardless of their birth order'), pack their bags in Zelda and Ivy: The Runaways by Laura McGee Kvasnosky. Always in synch with her audience, the author does not let the sisters stray far (they peek at their parents through the hedge) in the title story; the other two involve creating a time capsule and magic potion." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information)

Review:

"Bright, expressive cartoon illustrations complement the fine writing in this beginning reader." School Library Journal

About the Author

LAURA MCGEE KVASNOSKY has written and illustrated many books for young readers, including FRANK AND IZZY SET SAIL, as well as the other books about the fabulous fox sisters: ZELDA AND IVY, ZELDA AND IVY AND THE BOY NEXT DOOR, and ZELDA AND IVY ONE CHRISTMAS. She says, "In my childhood, my sister Nan and I would run away to the backyard. These days our destinations might be more exotic — like Provence in spring — but the excitement of those early expeditions is hard to match."
