Book Review: Lilli-Pilli’s Sister by Anna Bradford, illustrated by Linda Catchlove

Lilli-Pilli’s Sister is a very sweet book about a cv_lilli-pillis-sisteryoung pixie preparing herself for her younger sibling’s birth by searching for items to make the baby’s crib comfortable. My two-year-old was instantly taken with this book, and has asked to be read it many times since.

The narrative is, on the whole, good, although some of the turns of phrase used feel a little clunky when read aloud. It’s the illustrations, however, that make this book a special one.

I especially enjoyed the Australian twist on traditional stories about pixies, and the art truly captures the imagination. I recommend this book for children, especially those whose mothers’ are expecting a younger brother or sister.
