They have a dog named Jake, a cat named Paws, a turtle, and a treehouse. Most of all, the girls next door have each other. But there is one thing that they don’t have... and it might be the most special thing of all.

A heartwarming story about the bond between grandmothers and grandchildren.

"...the storyline is universal with a theme that transcends all ages, namely of wanting what others have, when others want what is yours."

– Postmedia News

"Nonna and the Girls Next Door offers an important lesson for young children when it comes to jealousy... The story is gentle with its characters and offers readers the chance to think about their own feelings of envy and how to deal with them."

– Terri Suico from Brain Lair Books (South Bend, IN)
