Daddy-long-legs (Everyman's Library Children's Classics) - Jean Webster My initial thoughts were that this book sounded vaguely familiar...I must have read it at some point in my youth. If I did, it was only once, and as such has faded into the depths of time.Read as an adult with a unabashed fondness for what I call "Retro YA", I thought this was fun, if a bit predictable. One of my favorite things was the completely different world view of this author as compared to L.M Montgomery or Louisa May Alcott. It was quite obvious that this Author was a bit unusual in 1912, as she was at the least an agnostic with definite socialist leanings.
