Jack and Lily

Jack and Lily

Book - 2001
Rate this:

Jack is four and his little sister Lily is two, and their world will be utterly familiar to all small children. A new washing machine being delivered; choosing new shoes; making friends with a dog in the park; a new babysitter; helping in the kitchen; hiding something and forgetting where: all these themes and more are covered in the stories. Written and illustrated with the greatest charm, they are warm and comfortable in tone, with a gentle humour and appealing characters that children of Jack and Lily's age will relate to.

This is a lovely family book, reminiscent of Shirley Hughes's bestselling Alfie and Annie Rose books. Angela McAllister writes out of her own experience as a mother of small children, and Phillida Gili illustrates each page with delightful colour pictures of the children, their toys and pets, and their small adventures indoors and outdoors.
