About this title

Synopsis:

This classic novel about a lively little girl from Maine has delighted both young and old ever since it was first published, in 1903. Mark Twain called the book "beautiful and warm and satisfying," and, indeed, Kate Douglas Wiggin's timeless creation lives on in the hearts of countless readers.

And who can resist the charms of Rebecca Rowena Randall from Sunnybrook Farm? From the moment she steps on board Uncle Jerry Cobb's stagecoach on her way to a new life in Riverboro, all who encounter her are enchanted by this irrepressible, passionate child with the wonderfully beguiling eyes. Her classmates and friends; the young businessman, "Mr. Aladdin"; and in the end, even prim and proper Aunt Miranda can't help but be won over by Rebecca's good nature and remarkable spirit.

Full of humor and warmth, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm is an American treasure. This beautifully produced facsimile, featuring six full-color plates and thirtytwo pen-and-ink drawings by Rebecca's original illustrator, Helen Mason Grose, is sure to be enjoyed by a new generation.

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)
