Read full description of the books:



A few years ago I bought this book for my sister, who has a thing for children's books in which the characters fix up houses and pull weeds -- whatever else may be said about it, Dandelion Cottage is an ideal exemplar of that genre. At the time, I tried to read it myself, but found it overly twee. Just a couple months ago, I bought (in the same used bookstore, which I stop by every time I visit my sister) another book by the author, Girls of Highland Hall, and saw that it was a sequel, and, more intriguingly, a school story. So I borrowed this one back and gave it another go so that I could in due course properly appreciate the second book.

The early chapters, again, were hard going, and I could only make the intense sweetness palatable by interspersing them with some dry as dust literary criticism -- I'm not sure exactly why I found this book so particularly cloying when my shelves, literal and virtual, are crammed with similarly nicey-nice vintage fare. Happily though, the book grew on me, and it's hard to resist the charms of the dandelion-themed wallpaper, which a kind older friend of the four girls in the story donates for the cottage's dining room. I visualize it as being a beautifully art nouveau pattern, indeed, not unlike the cover of the 1904 first edition of this book (click on the different editions to see it). Undoubtedly it wouldn't have taken me so long to warm to this book had I read it in that edition.

It turns out a real-life cottage inspired this work, and it still stands today:
