Most peoople have not heard of Pappa Pellerin's Daughter, but it is an amazing book, amusing, interesting, not draggy, a bit emotional sometimes, and with a lovely, though very predictable ending. The girl, Loella, who everyone calls 'Loopy Loella', is a strange child, basically bringing herself up in the woods, with two brothers to look after solely by herself. An old sca...more

Es un libro muy tierno, creo que explora bien qué es lo que un niño siente pasando a ser casi un huérfano. Y, yo siendo una hermana mayor, creo que también es justo lo que se hace por los hermanitos lo que me conmueve del libro. El orgullo de ella por ser la que los cuida, los alimenta y los protege, eso es con lo que me identifico (y con su disgusto a la ciudad).
Creo que no le doy las cinco estrellas por la traducción. Pero esa es mi único motivo. No te aburre en ningún momento, ni te cansa; es...more

I think this was the first book I read ever and it's kind of sad cause the girl don't have a mother in home and the mother is completely selfish, I liked really but when I was 10 and I only finished the book because I started but if I'd read it again I won't

I was kinda obsessed with being an orphan, and also, living in the forest by myself -i don't have siblings- was the best idea when I was little. Nevermind, amazing book, specially because of the plot. I actually love this one, I think i'm gonna read it again.

Lo leí cuando tenía creo que 11 o 12 años y me pareció tan tonto... y si me lo pareció en esa época ahora supongo que me parecerá peor. Recuerdo que lo que no me gustaba era como trataban el tema de la chica que se había criado sin un padre. No empaticé con ella en absoluto y me parecía una visión superficial y absurda del abadono, más que la visión general, la protagonista era odiosa y... tonta.
I read it Norwegian as a young girl, remember I liked it so much I read it twice. Maybe I ought to read it again now?
I literally loved this book when I was 10 years old! I can still read it with the same anticipation! :-)
It's a weird story, but it's amazingly interesting! It's even ridiculous how good it is!
Lo leí de pequeña y no lo recuerdo muy bien pero creo que me gusto bastante :)
