QUILTS IN THE ATTIC

Playing with quilts in the attic, Natasha imagines all sorts of identities for herself--a king, the fast wind, a star--and younger sister Rosie merely echoes each assertion with a ""Me too."" Finally Natasha counters haughtily with ""No, you're not,"" but Rosie calls her bluff by announcing ""Then I'll just be a quilt,"" and lying quiet and still until Natasha gives in and decides that she too will be a quilt. ""Then they hugged each other tight""--injecting a slightly mushy touch into an otherwise slight but recognizable incident. Forberg's smudgy-scratchy illustrations are just a bit drab (attic or no), the sisters just a bit cute.
