DADDY-LONG-LEGS – Jean Webster, 1912

What happy memories!
I received this book for Christmas and read it in a few hours. It took me right back to when I was 11 years old and it was my favourite novel. I remembered it very differently, however.
It is much more literary than I gave it credit for, too. I envy Judy her education and the books she reads in order to obtain it.
The foreshadowing is exquisite (no pun intended).

I overlooked this book for far too long I am not going to wait even ten years before I read it again.
