By Elizabeth Coatsworth
Level 7

This sweet and funny book by the wonderful author Elizabeth Coatsworth was originally published in 1934. The book is a hidden treasure and absolutely delighted my girls. This book is set in the era shortly before the War of 1812 and is rich with details of life in early America.
