ZELDA AND IVY by Laura McGee Kvasnosky

ZELDA AND IVY

The Runaways
Age Range: 5 - 7

KIRKUS REVIEW

In three new episodes, the Fox sisters discover that not even running out to hide in the yard will save them from yet another lunch of cucumber sandwiches, that it’s not a good idea to put something you’ll miss into a time capsule and that a sprinkle of “creative juices” made from a secret formula can dispel the most stubborn case of writer’s block. As in previous appearances, the sisters, their parents and Ivy’s friend Eugene (the one who suggests the “creative juice”) are depicted as long-nosed foxes, furred in various bright orangey tones but placed in human settings. Unlike previous outings, these wry tales are presented in easy-reader format, and they’ll make tasty fare for newer readers. (Easy reader. 5-7)
