Summary: Andy is a short, quiet, dark-haired boy; Sandy is a tall, louder, red-haired girl. In their first adventure, they both play alone at the playground until they realize they can only enjoy the seesaw if they get together. In the second installment, a playdate turns into a series of masquerades when they discover an old trunk filled with dress-up clothes. Book #3 is due out in October. 32 pages; ages 3-7.
Pros: Told in about two dozen short, simple sentences, these would be excellent first books for beginning readers. As always, Tomie dePaola’s illustrations are charming.
Cons: The stories lack the originality and humor of another set of easy reader friends, Elephant and Piggie.
