And here's another that I loved, a story of a little girl who didn't want to grow up, because she didn't want to wear a bustle and long skirts. This is a year of her life, with the round of holidays and natural incidents, so delightfully told that it fills the recurrent demand for a ""story that might be true."" There have been so many of these that they have to be good to stand out, as this and Dody and Cap-tin Jinks (see above).
