In the tradition of classics such as The Wind in the Willows and Winnie-the-Pooh comes Anna Alter’s first chapter book.
 
Henry, Violet, Emma, Wilbur, and Fernando are neighbors in the same apartment building and they are also friends—though they have very different personalities and interests. Henry prefers peace and quiet, and poetry. Violet spends hours knitting and practicing her flute. Emma loves planning birthday parties. Wilbur would be happy to spend all day in his garden. And Fernando is just a little bit shy, but has a secret talent for the stage.
 
Sharing walls with your neighbor can sometimes bring the unexpected, but in the end, these five work together to overcome their differences.

About the Author:

Anna Alter grew up with a great love for drawing, painting, and reading. She attended the Rhode Island School of Design, where she studied illustration. Anna is the author and illustrator of Disappearing Desmond, A Photo for Greta, and Abigail Spells. Her books have been selected as a CCBC Choice, a Bank Street College Best Children’s Book of the Year, a Junior Library Guild Selection, and a Texas 2x2 Recommended Reading Selection, and have twice been included in the Society of Illustrators Original Art Show.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2–4—This intermediate chapter book showcases five very different neighbors—Henry (a mouse), Emma (a squirrel), Wilbur (a cat), Violet (a chicken), and Fernando (a rabbit)—all living in an apartment building. They help one another in simple ways, such as celebrating a special birthday, as well as with more complicated problems, such as moving a garden about to be demolished or repairing a drippy roof. The chapters are liberally sprinkled with adorable illustrations, and each story begins with a picture of the resident's apartment door, allowing readers to speculate about his or her habits and hobbies. Hand this title to fans of Cynthia Rylant or Patricia MacLachlan or to any reader who prefers a quieter book.—Melisa Bailey, Harford County Library System, MD
