Some moralistic stories, some great stories. I really enjoyed Railroad Through and Through, in particular.

Reading this as an adult, I'd have to give it 3 stars. If I was a preteen, I'd probably say it was 5. Some of the stories fell a little flat; others were cute; others I wished were full length books. A good variety of plots and culture, it's definitely something I'd recommend to preteens, girls and boys alike.

Another book of short stories featuring strong female characters. In this case, they are all preteens. Kind of a mixed bag, and I really didn't like the story about girl scouts, because I felt the one scout leader (if you read it, you'll know the one I mean) was not very realistic. I think any other scout leader in that situation would have known/done the right thing. Nothing brilliant, particularly, but all feature clever girls, and since they are short, even the flimsiest attention span can ke ...more

Definitely a good book for 8-12 year old girls. A great book about strong, young, problem solver girls. I think this book sends a great message to the reader. This book is also great because the it is made up of a bunch of short stories, so if the reader gets bored easily, or has a hard time finishing books, it's easier to read. You can just pick it up, read one story, then put it down.

I was born on June 1, 1941. My first home was an apartment in Manhattan's Upper West Side, a neighborhood that overlooked the George Washington Bridge. Soon after kindergarten, my family moved to Scarsdale, which seemed to be “in the country.” In high school, I broke my ankle when I went out for the lacrosse team, so I wrote a sports column for the school newspaper. I don't think I showed any part ...more
