2014 book 173

Charles de Lint's Seven Wild Sisters
The sequel/companion to The Cats of Tanglewood Forest is pretty much as charming as the first one. This one centers on Sarah Jane, the middle of seven sisters, who's befriended an elderly Lily and accidentally gets caught up in fairy affairs--dragging all her sisters in after her. I really liked all the girls, and the story is suitably fairy-ish, but again, it's the Charles Vess illustrations here that are tops. Must be read in print or as a color e-book to be fully appreciated. B+/A-.
