9780399246517: Billy and Milly, Short and Silly!

Follow Billy and Milly through thirteen adventures in these funny and simple short stories. Through very basic storytelling, these brief narratives are told in only three or four words apiece. For example, ?Stoops (Billy and Milly sit on their front stoops as the ice cream truck drives by.), Hoops (Billy shoots his basketball?), Scoops (?as Milly licks her ice cream cone?), Oops (?until the ball hits the cone and squashes her ice cream!).?

Eve Feldman cleverly uses easily recognizable words in these entertaining episodes, and Tuesday Mourning?s vibrant, playful illustrations jump off the page to bring readers right into the action. With a pair of wonderfully playful characters, Billy and Milly is perfect for anyone who likes a good short story!

About the Author:

Eve Feldman lives in Rockville Center, New York.

Tuesday Mourning lives in Southern California.

From Publishers Weekly:

Feldman (Animals Don't Wear Pajamas) uses just three or four rhyming words to tell each of the 13 (very) short stories starring the titular hero and heroine. In "Bike/Spike/Hike," Billy is stuck pushing his bicycle up a hill after hitting a tack-like object. "Flame/Blame/Shame/Tame" finds Milly teaching a naughty dragon that it's not nice to barbeque someone else's toy; the dragon makes up for the transgression by giving Milly a magical ride on its back. While some of the stories are more successful than others, the diverse and often fantastical premises are entertaining, and all the vignettes are elevated by Mourning's (Princess Peepers) stylish artwork. The mixed media collages evoke a hip playfulness with a hodgepodge of typography and retro wallpaper textures, though the Bratz doll-like leads have a somewhat limited expressive range. While the stories are short, the book itself isn't short on ingenuity. Ages 3-5.
