This was the first chapter book my daughter read so I bought it for my granddaughter.
She loved it too!
This was my and my sister's favorite book when we were little. I got it for her for her birthday. We're 25 and 26 now and still love it as much as we did 20 years ago!Published 14 months ago by Victoria
