About The Book

Meet the
Cobble Street Cousins
* Lily, who wants to be a poet *
* Tess, who wants to be a Broadway star *
* Rosie, who wants a little cottage with flowers by the door *
It's spring on Cobble Street, and Lily has a great idea -- the Cobble Street Cousins' own newspaper! Soon the very first edition of The Cobble Street Courier is hot off the presses, with a poem by Lily, Tess's favorite jokes, and Rosie's yummy recipe for shortbread -- even an interview with Aunt Lucy's boyfriend, Michael. Now it's time to deliver the paper to all the cousins' old friends on Cobble Street -- and a couple of new ones!
