I just re-read this classic, which was first copyrighted in 1939. Wow, how things have changed!

In today's market, this would've been considered too long and unfocused. Plus, I found that it had elements of sexism, subtle racism, and abuses of the child labor laws. Ha!

In the end, the problem was solved by the hand-of-God rather than the main character solving it for herself. If I had received this for critique, the poor author would've been chastised beyond belief.

But, the art is wonderful and comforting and it is good to revisit classics just to see how far the children's book world has come.
