Review of the 1946 Newbery Medalist: Strawberry Girl, by Lois Lenski. FIVE STARS (F) - The Boyers work and fight (literally) to stake out a living in the Florida swampland and pine forests. #NewberyMedal
The Light Princess by George MacDonald is the story of a princess who is cursed at birth by her wicked aunt to be incredibly...light. She has no gravity, and if she is not weighed down she may simply float away. Worse, however, is her loss of seriousness. She is incredibly light-hearted. This is a beautifully unique fairytale about the strength of true love. We give it an enthusiastic five stars!
