Anne is reading
Cat in the Mirror by Mary Stolz

Irun caught her breath, looking down at the little cat nestled in her hands.  It was not, like most cats of the country, honey-orange with faint stripings.  It was an entirely special cat of silver-grey, with eyes and ears outlined in black, as if with kohl.  The eyes, staring up at her, were green as -- green as --

"Her eyes," said Perub, "reminded us of the lakes in the Oasis."

Thistle and the Shell of Laughter by J. H. Sweet

Starfish's name was Gina.  She had long, curly blond hair and wore a soft, sand colored, star-shaped cap.  Her dress fell to just below her knees and was made of sweeping green and blue tendrils that looked like brightly colored seaweed strands.  Starfish's tiny, delicate wings were the exact color of sea foam.  When she moved, a refreshing mist of sea drops lightly sprayed the other fairies.  And her voice had a rich, breathless quality like coastal winds and roaring waves.

Lily is reading
Little Fur Family by Margaret Wise Brown

There was a little fur family
warm as toast
smaller than most
in little fur coats
and they lived in a warm
wooden tree.
