Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A kind woman who was always deeply interested in the problems of the downtrodden, Jean Webster made an orphan girl a major character in one of her most charming and popular books--Daddy-Long-Legs. The oldest at a dreary home for foundlings, Judy Abbott finds her life completely changed when, with the help of a mysterious benefactor, she is granted her wish to be able to go to college. In return for this great favor, Judy has to write her anonymous sponsor each month about her activities at the New England school, which she does in letters addressed to "Daddy-Long-Legs." A meeting with the rich, handsome uncle of her snobbish roommate sets Judy and readers alike on the road to uncovering the secrets surrounding her secret friend. Unabridged republication of a standard edition.

Synopsis:

A spirited orphan girl and her wealthy but mysterious benefactor lead readers down a delightful road filled with the twists and turns of young romance.

One of those childhood reads you keep going back to. Imagine if Annie had gone to prep school and eventually fell in love with Daddy Warbucks. That's this book.
