The Adventures of Abigail Rose is delightful. The fact that it is historical fiction set in my home state of Florida adds to its appeal. What a clever way to insert this porcelain doll into a story that takes place in hurricane prone Florida. This beautiful doll was a birthday gift for a wealthy man who lived in Manatee, Florida. Telling the story from the first person viewpoint of the doll adds to the tale of Abigail Rose as she endures existing in the outside during an unexpected hurricane. The title of the book indicates that there are further adventures for Abigail Rose and I will not reveal too much.
The author's love of history is obvious. I especially enjoyed the sections in the back which included appropriate vocabulary as well as chapter questions. What an asset for a classroom teacher who would want to use this book in a class.
