Another title celebrating a century marker, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm by Kate Douglas Wiggin, appears with new illustrations by Barbara McClintock. Her signature artwork with its period details, which appears as full-color plates throughout, seems particularly well suited to this cheery heroine. The illustrations impart a cozy, familiar feel to a long-ago world, and reveals a lively, generous spirit in the heroine who leaves her home to live with her two elderly aunts.

Fiction: I Six full-color illustrations and numerous pen-and-ink drawings attractively depict the familiar characters and old-time setting of the classic novel. Wiggin's story of the impulsive but well-meaning dreamer continues to hold appeal. Horn Rating: Superior, well above average. Reviewed by: aed (c) Copyright 2010.
