Heartfelt and hilarious, this is a classic and sweeping yarn, a story of pairs-of spirited young orphans Naomi and Lizzie in Blackbird Tree, USA, and of Sybil and Nula, grown-up sisters from far away Rooks Orchard, Ireland. Beloved author Sharon Creech deftly weaves these two rich worlds together, as unraveling mysteries of identity unfold with alternating stories across the ocean. Naomi’s and Lizzie’s misfortunes turn into lives filled with hope, as old misunderstandings between Sybil and Nula give way to love and forgiveness. With captivating language and an amazing cast of characters, such as Elizabeth Scatterding, Miss Pilpenny, Witch Wiggins, Mr. Dingle, and Paddy McCoul, this is a tale about unexpected gifts-the kindness of neighbors, of strangers fostering children, and of young people helping old and old helping young. This breathtaking tale reminds us that magic is everywhere, though not necessarily where we might think.
