If the Randall family's life at Sunnybrook Farm seemed to be constant pandemonium, you could be sure that Rebecca Randall and her six brothers and sisters were usually to blame. When her two unmarried aunts, Miranda and Jane, kindly agree to take their poor relation off her mother’s tired hands, Rebecca finds her new life stifling. But not for long.
With a talent for mischief and a zest for living, the lively youngster manages to confound her aunts, who are determined to turn the irrepressible and opinionated little girl into a proper young lady. Their efforts are rewarded, but not before Rebecca nearly turns the quiet little town of Riverboro topsy-turvy.
Delightful reading for pre-teens, this engaging story is also sure to bring back pleasant memories to Rebecca's older fans.

Review:
Author Jack London wrote Kate Douglas Wiggin a letter about her classic Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm from the headquarters of the First Japanese Army in Manchuria in 1904: "May I thank you for Rebecca?... I would have quested the wide world over to make her mine, only I was born too long ago and she was born but yesterday.... Why could she not have been my daughter? Why couldn't it have been I who bought the three hundred cakes of soap? Why, O, why?" Mark Twain called Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm "beautiful and warm and satisfying."

Who is this beguiling creature? The irrepressible 10-year-old Rebecca Rowena Randall burst into the world of children's book characters (and her new life in Maine) in 1903 when storybook girls were gentle and proper. A "bird of a very different feather," she had "a small, plain face illuminated by a pair of eyes carrying such messages, such suggestions, such hints of sleeping power and insight, that one never tired of looking into their shining depths.... " Soon enough, she wins over her prim Aunt Miranda, the whole town, and thousands of readers everywhere with her energetic, indomitable spirit. This beautiful trade edition features the artwork of Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm's original illustrator Helen Mason Grose, with 6 full- color plates and 32 pen-and-ink drawings. (Ages 9 and older)

About the Author:
Kate Douglas Wiggin (1856-1923) was an American of Welsh descent. She wrote juvenile literature that catered brilliantly to children's tastes. She started the first free Kindergarten in San Francisco and, with the help of her sister, set up a training institute for kindergarten teachers. As a writer of children's books, she is best known for her The Birds' Christmas Carol (1887) and Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm (1903).
