it was amazing
bookshelves: funny-and-deep, childrens
Read in February, 2016

Again, a reread for the 2016 Book Battle. Here's what I wrote in my notebook:

Again, I don't think Birdsall quite nails what Hilary McKay does - Ianthe is too perfect; Jane too self-absorbed to care so much about 'the family honor', and Rosalind way too maternally responsible. But still lovely and 'Marianne doesn't like flannel' cracks me up.
