Alice & Clara's Pick of the Week: Brownie & Pearl

We recently discovered the series Brownie & Pearl by Cynthia Rylant.  Brownie is a shy little girl, and Pearl is her right-hand cat.  Together they go on all kinds of adventures - having snacks, playing with friends, dressing up.  The books are brightly illustrated and the stories are very simply told with just a couple lines on each page.  Both my girls love Brownie and wish that Pearl was their very own cat.  They have quickly memorized the stories so that they can "read" them on their own and to each other.  I would recommend this series to any kid who enjoys the Maisy series.  There are 8 books in all:

  • Brownie & Pearl Step Out
  • Brownie & Pearl Get Dolled Up
  • Brownie & Pearl See the Sights
  • Brownie & Pearl Take a Dip
  • Brownie & Pearl Get a Bite
  • Brownie & Pearl Hit the Hay
  • Brownie & Pearl Go for Spin
  • Brownie & Peal Make Good
Later this year, Brownie & Pearl On the Go hits the shelves!!
