Who Wrote This?
"You have been my friend, that in itself is a tremendous thing. I wove my web for you because I liked you. After all, what's a life, anyway? We're born, we live a while, we die.... By helping you, perhaps I was trying to lift up my life a trifle, Heaven knows anyone's life can stand a little of that!" [Tell Me!]

The Princess School: If The Shoe Fits
by Sarah Hines Stephens
Sarah Hines Stephens has done an excellent job with this book. The main character is an unfortunate girl named Ella, (Cinderella) and she arrives at Princess School in rags and barefoot. She envies the other girls, who have perfect teeth, hair, dresses, and parents. Ella lives with mean, ugly stepsisters, and a mean, ugly stepmother. But at Princess School, she discovers friends that will stick with her and help her pull through hard times. In the end, Rapunzel, Snow, and Rose help Ella attend the ball and she has a wonderful time. The writing is easy and clear, and there are many humorous and ironic twists to the story. I highly recommend "If The Shoe Fits".
All of A Kind Family
by Sydney Taylor
All of A kind Family by Sydney Taylor is a very well written book. It is about five sisters living on the eve of World War 1. Ella, Henny, Sarah, Charlotte, and Gertie get along well (most of the time) and they all enjoy being an all of a kind family. The reading is simple and enjoyable, and the storyline entertaining and very interesting. Girls, (and boys) of all ages will love this innocent story. The five sisters find adventure in everything, from dusting the furniture, to going to the library or market with Mama. In the end, there is a surprise that will please readers, while reading this book will make you want to read the next one in the series.
There is something for everyone in All of A Kind Family!
