Annotation: Rosemary Rita relied on her quick wits and good fortune in her first adventure. Now that her grandmother is at hand, she prepares more thoroughly for her next trip into her family's past. The destination is Paris, where her great-great-grandmother, ten-year-old Rosemary Grace Christiansen, is visiting the brand-new Eiffel Tower at the 1889 World's Fair. People from all over the world have converged on the city. Some visitors are talented artists. Others, unfortunately, are shady characters.

Gr 4-6-In Rosemary Meets Rosemarie, Rosemary Rita celebrates her 10th birthday and receives 10 packages from Mimi, her carefree granny who shares a special bond with her granddaughter, and namesake. The packages contain old trinkets, memorabilia, and foreign postcards, all owned by previous Rosemarys. Mimi writes a cautionary letter about the 10th present, but Rosemary rips into it to discover an hourglass. Before she knows what's happening, she finds herself on a bustling Berlin street in 1870, talking to Rosemarie Ruth Berger, her 10-year-old great-great-great-grandmother. The girls quickly become friends, despite the language barrier, and share an adventure. Later, she finds the hourglass and uses it to return home. The story continues the next day in Paris. Rosemary is anxious to embark on another trip, this time to the Paris Exhibition of 1889. Once again she travels through time and meets her great-great-grandmother Rosemary "Gracie" Christianson. Together, they tour the exhibits, meet a famous artist, and help unravel a crime ring before Rosemary returns home. Illustrations in both books offer a historical flavor, and include glossaries of German and French phrases used in the stories. Readers are encouraged to visit the publisher's Web site for fun activities and games. The author's notes provide historical information about the times and settings. These two whimsical stories add to the current trend of interactive stories and will appeal to readers looking for a series with room for imagination.-Alison Grant, West Bloomfield Township Public Library, MI Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
