The Story Girl Review

Montgomery wrote with her usual luminous, magical style of simplicity and enchantment, weaving in nature's beauty with an artist and poet's skill. I love the charactersboth their uniqueness in themselves and their overall types. I love the freedom and silliness and jolliness and innocence of the children's escapades. Their view of grownups and the grownups treatment/reaction to them. The little fights, trials, adorations/admirations, and skills. I love this sort of homespun story with sparkle. The world of these children is so different from ours.

  1. I LOVE this book, SO much! You described it so well. I could never describe such an amazing book in seven sentences like you did. Well done!
