This is a charming story. The family is poor, but extremely happy and loyal to their mom. In the end, they have quite a change in fortunes as they become indispensable companions for a wealthy family.

The only part that might cause Grace & Ian to pause and ponder in any sort of negative way is the burglary scene toward the end of the book. But, it is fairly benign.

I didn't realize when I requested this from the library I was getting an abridged version. I read it just the same wishin I had requested the original version. It was such a delightful story with a bit of an unpredicted ending. Next time I will defintely be careful when requesting classics from the library.

I don't know how I made it to the age of 40 without ever hearing of this book, but I did. Such a wonderful book! I read this out loud to my first-grade daughter, and we both loved every page. Makes me want to go back and read the original...

Is this book old fashioned now? Well yes, but such a wonderful story with great values. A must read. One of my favorite childhood books.
