bookshelves: children-fiction

As an undergrad, I worked at a great little independent bookstore. This will date me, but it was before the days of Amazon and lots of people special ordered titles. A customer stopped in one day, gave me her name, and said she had a book on hold. I went to the shelf, found her name, and pulled this book off the hold shelf. I felt a big emotional WHOMPF when I saw the cover, because I recognized it from childhood, but had forgotten it existed.

I had a hard time turning it over to the customer. I wanted to keep it, not to lose track of it again. Instead I ordered a copy of my own. Since then, I have given many copies of this as gifts.

I recognize it now as a feminist story and it's interesting to me that even my young self was drawn to that.
