Granny Torrelli Makes Soup
Synopses & Reviews
Twelve-year-old Rosie and her best friend, Bailey, don't always get along, that's true. But Granny Torrelli seems to know just how to make things right again with her warm words and family recipes. She understands from experience that life's twists and turns can't rattle the unique bond between two lifelong pals.
Newbery Medal winner Sharon Creech cooks up a delightfully tender novel, filled with homemade dishes and secret recipes. It's easy to remember what's important about love, life, and friendship while Granny Torrelli makes soup.
That Bailey . . .
Bailey, that Bailey! He said to me, "Rosie, get over yourself!
It was not a compliment.
I said, "Bailey, you get over your own self.
Which shows you just how mad I was, to say such a dumb thing. I'm Mad . . .
Bailey, who is usually so nice, Bailey, my neighbor, my friend, my buddy, my pal for my whole life, knowing me better than anybody, that Bailey, that Bailey I am so mad at right now, that Bailey, I hate him today.
Creech, the Newbery Medal-winning author of "Walk Two Moons" cooks up a delightfully tender novel about love, life, and friendship.
