Seen as old-fashioned now, but each of these stories teaches good morals. We can't keep what isn't ours, but sometimes a solution comes up that suits all involved.

I remember reading this series when I was a little girl, and it's marvelous that today's early readers will have a chance to read them as well. The stories, such as the one contained here, are timeless and the characters are appealing.

I thought it was fascinating that the girls appear to be identical triplets, which is very rare. I thought i

The girls find a small dog and take him in, only to discover that he belongs to someone else. Fear not for all works out well in the end.
