Claire Masurel is the author of numerous books for children, including TOO BIG, illustrated by Hanako Wakiyama. TWO HOMES is her first book for Candlewick Press. She wrote the story after talking to a child who was sad about her parents' recent divorce. She says, "To comfort her, I talked about her two homes, and all the many things she could do in them. It was a positive way of helping her accept the changes in her life, focusing not on what was missed, but on the abundance of good times -- and love -- that she would continue to share with her mom and dad."
Kady MacDonald Denton is the illustrator of A CHILD'S TREASURY OF NURSERY RHYMES and two books by Margaret Park Bridges - IF I WERE YOUR FATHER and IF I WERE YOUR MOTHER. TWO HOMES is her first book for Candlewick Press. She says, "Alex talks about simple things like toothbrushes, bedrooms, and friends -- and they are all special because they are part of the love Alex feels in both homes. I tried to show that love in the illustrations."

Great for little girls maned Emily Jan 16, 2007
I know... Emily is the most popular girls' name these days, but that makes this series of books even better, in my opinion. We have the Thanksgiving and Christmas books of the series so far, and I do recommend them. The lift-the-flap aspect is great for interaction, and my daughter loves to talk about what's happening in each page.
We will definitely be getting more books in this series!
