Praise for Return to the Willows

“Evoking the ineffable mixture of capers and camaraderie that has kept the original in print for so long, [Kelly] serves up a roistering, boisterous tale…” — The Washington Post

“Ms. Kelly balances old and new elements to pull off the sequel writer’s high-wire act.” — The Wall Street Journal

“Kelly managed to capture the tone of the original book perfectly while also making it accessible to 21st century audiences (no mean feat!).” 5/5 Stars — Betsy Bird, Children’s Librarian at the New York Public Library (via Goodreads)
