That is an amazing review. I don't think I have quite the love for these childrens' titles as you do (I grew up more so on the Brothers Grimm), but Nordstrom's character certainly intrigues me. She is a famous name, after all.

Thanks, Rachel -- this sounds like a great book for me to read.
(I smile whenever I think of Frances!)

Jane, please read it! And tell me if the editing process nowadays is anything like it was then.

Dar -- I actually never heard of Nordstrom until I read this. She is a fascinating character though. It makes you want to start using a typewriter. And the postal service.
