Loved it!!
This is a great group of short stories written in a delightful style. Takes you back to childhood with perhaps a few surprises about this young girl. A glimpse into the life of a rather eccentric family or perhaps makes you realize every family is a bit eccentric. Easy to identify if you are a child of the 40's and 50' education for younger readers. Suitable for young teens. A great read!
