Jean Webster’s entertaining tale of a high-spirited orphan girl coming-of-age in the early 1900s has been made into a play, several movies, and a musical comedy. Kate Forbes’ fresh portrayal of Jerusha will win the hearts of a new generation of readers.

    "Delightful"

    If Jo March, Anne Shirley and Juliet Stevenson were rolled into one witty, creative and smart young writer she would be Judy. Adorable character, great format and enough intrigue.
