(5 stars)

Lovely, sweet stories of summer and childhood, growing and changing viewed thru the rose-hued glasses of yesteryear.

Anne of green gables, it is not.

(5 stars)

Written by the author of Anne of Green Gables. Rich history and language, a story of children thrown together for a summer. Wonderful tales, folklore and fables woven into their days by The Story Girl. Any age should enjoy this, but 10-14 will identify with it.

beautiful and hilarious!
