Granny Torrelli Makes Soup by Sharon Creech

Sharon captures the reader once again with this touching tale of friendship. Although a quick read, it gives the audience a full meaning of what it is like to have a real and true friend. I like the way the book is written: in short chapters and flashes of memories. Here’s what it’s about:

Rosie and Bailey have been best friends since the dawn of time. They played together, went to school together… basically grew up together.  But even the best of friends fight, as is what happens in this book. But Granny Torrelli, Rosie’s grandmother, is there to console her and make a wonderful meal for everybody!

An amusing little story of Rosie’s attempts to please her friend, this book is heartwarming, fun, and absolutely cute! I’d like to give it around 7.5 stars, as it is a nice book to read. I’d recommend it for ages 8-12, as that is the age that wouldn’t get too bored and will get the most fun out of it. A great read!
