Chapter titles include "Concerning, Among Other Things, My Most Wonderful Birthday."

I had actually read this little book before and purchased this copy as a gift for a friend who is a fan of the late Elizabeth Taylor.
J Taylor
The book is recommended for children ages 9-12, but I think adult fans of Elizabeth Taylor will enjoy this story, too.

Format: Hardcover
In this book "Nibbles and Me", thirteen-year-old Elizabeth Taylor writes about her love for Nibbles, her pet chipmunk. She describes how Nibbles came into her life, and then goes on to describe various situations that involve her tiny companion. He gets into lots of trouble, but Elizabeth and her Mummie are always there to save the day! In addition to writing this book, young Elizabeth did the illustrations as well, and there are several black-and-white photos of Elizabeth and Nibbles throughout.

Finding this book was such a great surprise for me, as I had no idea that it even existed. The back flap of the book states that it was originally published in 1946, and this re-issue was published in 2002. There is an introduction dated October 2002 by Elizabeth Taylor in which, when asked about reprinting this book, she states, "Well, I thought about it and decided that it couldn't do anybody any harm...What it has are the growing-up observations of a thirteen-year-old girl, perhaps leaving childhood behind, but never forsaking her love of animals and the countryside." Elizabeth's love for animals absolutely shines through in this charming little book. The book is recommended for children ages 9-12, but I think adult fans of Elizabeth Taylor will enjoy this story, too. I know I certainly did!!

Who would picture Elizabeth Taylor with an animal trap, deliberately catching a collection of chipmunks? Rewind to her childhood, and it might be easier to imagine. During the filming of one of her movies, she was given one by the film's animal trainer. Already an enthusiastic pet owner, from there she was hooked. Her favorite was Nibbles, a plucky one who got in plenty of near-disasters (some of which are detailed here) but always seemed to come out unscathed.

Taylor was only 13 when she wrote and illustrated this chapter book, and it shows quite a talent for both prose and art, above the typical abilities of a young teen. It also contains several charming photographs of her with Nibbles. While it may never become a classic, it's a sweet, quick read that authentically demonstrates the love between a child and her beloved pet.

Format: Hardcover
This delightful little book was published when the actress was 14, a child star who illustrated the manuscript with her own drawings. It tells the story of her pet chipmunk, Nibbles, who became the only animal allowed in the studio cafeteria. While I love animal stories - who doesn't? - this first-hand glimpse into the life of a young girl in the early 1940s intrigued me. I can recommend this new edition to all ages, not just its age 4 - 8 target audience.

I had actually read this little book before and purchased this copy as a gift for a friend who is a fan of the late Elizabeth Taylor. The actress was already famous for National Velvet when she wrote this but it gives nice insight into the life of the young star. First of all, not only did she write it, she illustrated it. She was a clever writer for such a young person and did not seem to be spoiled by fame. Second, her love of animals started at an early age and was shared by her family. Third, her pleasant comments about those she worked with, not just other actors, but also the crew, showed her to be genuinely fond of other people and grateful for the support she received from them. Her controversial marriages aside, this book makes it easy to understand how she grew up to be a philanthropic and generous adult. The item was received in excellent condition just as advertised by the seller.
