Under the Lilacs
Under the Lilacs is about a little girl called Katie who builds a playhouse under a lilac bush. Everyone is busy, so Katie runs away with her cat to her backyard and builds a playhouse. I like that the cat’s name is Mango. While she is playing and eating strawberries, Katie decides that she needs to make room for her mom and her sister to move in. So she lets everyone into her playhouse.
The illustrations of plants in the book are very pretty and very calming and soothing. They look like water color paintings. It looks like it is autumn in the story because the leaves are yellow. I also think Katie is funny because she builds the whole playhouse and then she leaves after making room for her family. The lilac bush looks more like a tree than a bush, so lilacs must get really tall. Reading the book makes you want to have a lilac bush in your yard.
I recommend this book to people who like stories about kids going on an adventure and to people who enjoy stories with pretty pictures.
