Newbery Medal-winning author Beverly Cleary brings her classic warm humor to this funny, sweet story of a girl with big dreams.
Can imaginative Emily make her biggest dream come true?
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?
Written with Cleary's customary warmth and humor. The time of the story, about 1920, is delightfully brought to life.--Booklist
