Spunky Emily Bartlett lives in an old farmhouse in Pitchfork, Oregon at a time when automobiles are brand-new inventions and libraries are a luxury few small towns can afford. Her runaway imagination leads her to bleach a horse, hold a very scary sleepover, and feed the hogs an unusual treat. But can she use her lively mind to help bring a library to Pitchfork?
Adventure is pretty scarce in Pitchfork, Oregon. So why shouldn't Emily bleach Dad's old plow horse or try some of her other ideas?

I would recommend this book to a friend because it gives me something to think about.
I liked this story best because I can picture what is happening.
My favorite character was Emily because she had a lot of imagination which is what the book is about.
It did not make me laugh or cry because it has different parts of the story that can make people feel different feelings such as surprised and curious.
This book is very long but it is worth the money you pay for it. I am only 71/2 and I loved it!
