From the Hardcover edition.
Another deliciously nostalgic and hilariously charming story of four sisters and their adventures.
Jeanne Birdsall lives in Massachusetts in the US, with her husband, four cats, a rabbit, a pet snail, and a dog called Cagney. She says 'By the time I was ten or eleven, I'd run out of books to read. Each week I'd go to the library hoping that one of my favourite authors had written something new. Most weeks I'd have to take home books I'd already read, some of them eight, nine, or ten times. I promised myself then that I'd become a writer someday, to give readers like me a few more books to discover and enjoy.'
