2004 Award
Granny Torrelli Makes Soup
( Sharon Creech, HarperCollins $15.99 Score: ) If only every 12-year-old had a granny as wise and able as 12-year-old Rosie’s Granny Torrelli. With Rosie’s busy parents off stage, Granny not only cooks with Rosie, she shares her life stories and helps to heal a rift between Rosie and her best buddy Bailey (who happens to be blind). Written without quotation marks, the prose flows like a play. In Granny’s own words . . . “Tutto va bene! She says it like this: Too-toe vah BAY-nay! It means all is well.” 8–12.
