"A strong portrait ... stirring." (Booklist)
The story of young Helen Keller is told through the voice of her teacher, Annie Sullivan, and what a marvelous voice it is. Miss Sullivan's own backstory is woven masterfully throughout her experiences of trying to unlock the mind 6 year old Helen.
Miss Spitfire is a triumphant story of tribute to mankind's innate intelligence, to the gift of language, and to the blessed role of a teacher.
I highly recommend this book for readers of any age.
