Editorial Reviews

Review

Brain Pickings' Top 13 Children's, Illustrated, and Picture Books of 2013

"Crisply satirical and a little subversive, Twain's short, acerbic sendup slyly exhorts little girls to take a calculating approach to manipulating friends, brothers and elders. [...] An elegant curiosity for admirers of Twain, Radunsky or both." -- Kirkus Review

"Radunsky's ink flourishes and adorable, lumpy figures steal the stage." -- Publishers Weekly

About the Author

Vladimir Radunsky has illustrated many wonderful books, including The Maestro Plays by Bill Martin Jr and Woody Guthrie's Howdi Do. He is also the author-illustrator of 10 (ten), The Mighty Asparagus, and (with Chris Raschka) of Table Manners.

Born on November 30, 1835, in Florida, Missouri, Samuel L. Clemens wrote under the pen name Mark Twain and went on to pen several novels, including two major classics of American literature, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. He was also a riverboat pilot, journalist, lecturer, entrepreneur and inventor. It is unknown whether it was Mark Twain's actual intention for little girls to read this humorous short story published in 1867. What is clear is that he did not talk down to children, but rather expected them to stretch themselves in order to grasp sophisticated and perhaps even adult meanings.

Customer Reviews

In my opinion it's not really for little girls.
Ronald L. White
This adorable book is Mark Twain at his best, showing his love for his daughter and his irreverant humor at the same time.
Tammy Fancher
The illustrations are magnificent, the story is quirky and mischievous and the overall experience is enchanting.

i purchased this work and another for one of our grand children--the other book was a book by joyce--i buy books like these above mentioned--because i feel that these two writers just might pique the interest of the younger reader as well--i also have been known to have slipped a few of dahl's works under their noses as well--for they--to me, anyway--seem to make the ricketty bridge between child and adult a little easier to travel--i hope so

I bought this to read to my daughters, but I don't think they'll really appreciate it until they're at least 8-10 years old. Or 30.

I love my little book; the illustrations are wonderful and Twain displays his wit with brevity. I expected a little more content but was still happy to put it on the coffee table for viewing.

This is an extremely short book, but the illustrations and humor make it fun to read. A perfect illustration of Mark Twain's own brand of humor, I chuckled especially at the advice pertaining to the handling of little brothers. It reminded me of my daughter and sons.

for anyone who delights in the humorous antics and curiosity of little girls. And of course, the book is lovely and lovingly drawn.

What a treat! Thank you Enchanted Lion books for bringing this story to life. And, not just bringing it to life, but giving us a treat of Radunsky's illustrations. Twain and Radunsky together is a gem!

This is a little gem. I foresee giving it to "little girls" of all ages. It's not saccharine--and just tart enough.
