Perhaps in the future, Miss Fisher will write something that a younger audience can read themselves. We are enjoying it, though, in our own way. :)
Lily is six in this story, just starting first grade in a one-room schoolhouse in upstate New York. Her parents are busy building a farm, and soon animals join the family—Jenny the cow and Chubby the miniature horse. A baby brother arrives, too, which Lily has mixed feelings about. (She wanted a sister!) Aside from a mischievous friend like Mandy Mast, Lily is happy at school and even happier at home.
Special thanks to the wonderful people at Litfuse for providing me with this book for review!
