KIRKUS REVIEW

Squeamish adults like this -- but children will. Trudy is the youngest and most spoiled and most selfish of seven sisters, and she manages to get away with her naughtiness and selfishness with very little punishment, direct or indirect. Once in a while her better nature betrays itself -- and on the whole her pranks and quirks are normal and not too serious and she seems a very real, and not altogether appealing small person. The stories are short enough for reading aloud to six and seven year olds. Third and fourth graders will read them to themselves. Contemporary setting --near Buffalo -- and a family story that deals with the kinds of things most children do.
