KIRKUS REVIEW

A swell-elegant little girl story that is just about perfect even if it does introduce a rare event for its happy surprise ending. Two Susans live at opposite ends of the street from each other and, naturally, each would rather play with the other's belongings- respectively a sand box and a baby sister. Then after a mysterious few days that temporarily deprives Susan up-the-street from privileges in Susan down-the-street's yard, quintuplet sisters are born to the latter, who can now baby-sit all she wants and things are in harmony again. There's a note of ethereality in Jane Miller's brown brush pictures.
