MEET THE COBBLE STREET COUSINS Lily, who wants to be a poet. Tess, who wants to be a Broadway star. Rosie, who wants a little cottage with flowers by the door. It's winter vacation and there's no school for three weeks, but the Cobble Street Cousins aren't worried about being bored. They're learning how to sew from their neighbor Mrs. White. And they're starting to keep a diary about their year living in the wonderful attic room in Aunt Lucy's little blue house. Best of all, there's a Winter Solstice party at Aunt Lucy's boyfriend Michael's apartment, with special presents for everyone.
