About this title

Synopsis:

Rebecca Rowena Randall first won the hearts of readers in 1903, when Houghton MiVlin published Kate Douglas Wiggin’s novel Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm. An outspoken and precocious ten-year-old, Rebecca is one of those rare characters who have truly become a fixture in the canon of classic children’s literature. Rebecca’s good nature and generous, passionate spirit have made her a treasured heroine for more than a hundred years. Now, to celebrate the one hundredth anniversary of the novel’s original publication, Houghton MiVlin is proud to reissue Rebecca’s story in this new and unabridged edition with a special introduction by Newbery Honor winning author, Patricia Reilly Giff and luminous illustrations by award-winning artist Barbara McClintock.

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)
