Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The perfect gift for any girl! Whether it's Heidi, Pippi Longstocking, or Ramona the Pest, all your favorite, classic girl characters, past and present, are gathered together in one sumptuous, large-format treasury. Great Girl Stories is an ideal introduction to the most memorable heroines in literature, and includes contributions from such notable authors as Laura Ingalls Wilder (Little House in the Big Woods), Susan Coolidge (What Katy Did), Roald Dahl (Matilda), Katherine Paterson (The Great Gilly Hopkins), L.M. Montgomery (Anne of Green Gables), and Louisa May Alcott (Little Women). A short introduction to each character, and brief notes on the authors, make this lavish volume a rich family resource. Generously illustrated throughout by some of today's most celebrated artists, this truly beautiful book is a gift to be cherished, and passed down from one generation to another.
