About the Author:

Opal Whiteley grew up in logging settlements near the town of Cottage Grove, at the southern end of Oregon's Willamette Valley. A child literary prodigy and acclaimed nature teacher, she is the author of The Fairyland Around Us, a self-published nature book for children (1918), and her bestselling childhood diary, The Story of Opal (1920).

Review:

This turn-of-the-century six-year-old's diary presents a vivid portrait of the girl's life: it became a sensation upon its discovery in 1920 and today offers new YA readers a classic. The poetic-appearing structure of the lines may throw readers who take one look and expect verse; but the special presentation shouldn't detract from its strong message. -- Midwest Book Review
