This classic novel about a lively little girl from Maine has delighted both young and old ever since it was first published, in 1903. Mark Twain called the book "beautiful and warm and satisfying," and, indeed, Kate Douglas Wiggin's timeless creation lives on in the hearts of countless readers.

And who can resist the charms of Rebecca Rowena Randall from Sunnybrook Farm? From the moment she steps on board Uncle Jerry Cobb's stagecoach on her way to a new life in Riverboro, all who encounter her are enchanted by this irrepressible, passionate child with the wonderfully beguiling eyes. Her classmates and friends; the young businessman, "Mr. Aladdin"; and in the end, even prim and proper Aunt Miranda can't help but be won over by Rebecca's good nature and remarkable spirit.

Full of humor and warmth, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm is an American treasure. This beautifully produced facsimile, featuring six full-color plates and thirtytwo pen-and-ink drawings by Rebecca's original illustrator, Helen Mason Grose, is sure to be enjoyed by a new generation.

display_description A delightful children's classic tells the story of young Rebecca Rowena Randall, the mischief she gets into, and the difference she makes to the lives of those around her Set in Riverboro, Maine, this quintessentially American story is a remarkable depiction of rural life in the United States at the turn of the 20th century. We first meet Rebecca when she is on her way to live with her spinster aunts, Miranda and Jane, due to her family's financial straits. She has left behind her beloved home she grew up in, Sunnybrook Farm, her widowed mother, and six siblings. A cheerful and imaginative little girl, Rebecca soon forms a close bond with her Aunt Jane. Her natural wit and charm also endear Rebecca to the people of the village, who are struck by her positivity. However there remains a shadow over Rebecca's happiness: Aunt Miranda is baffled by her niece's vivid imagination, and childish wonder at all she sees. But when her mother falls ill and Rebecca is forced to look after her old farmstead home as well as her ailing mother, it may just be that Miranda has grown fond of her niece after all.
