ABOUT THIS BOOK

The story of an unhappy little girl, her invalid cousin, and the healing power of friendship and love. Reading level: 4.8.  

QUOTES

"This adaptation has its own special appeal. Although considerably shorter than the original, it remains faithful to the plot. Allen's oversize chalk drawings are handsome. Children sometimes pass over Burnett's story because by the time they are able to read it, they are no longer interested in the subject. For them, this adaptation will work well."--Booklist.  


From the Hardcover edition.
