Sprout Street Neighbors: Five Stories (Hardcover)

Sprout Street Neighbors: Five Stories Cover Image


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.
