My take on this book:
I loved the first two books in this series and couldn't wait to see what adventures Arleta would share with us about her grandmother Mabel when Mabel was a girl back in the 1880's. It seemed like Mabel and her best friend Sarah Jane were always into trouble, even when they weren't trying. The great thing about the mischievous girls was the fact that the stories always imparted little nuggets of wisdom. Even though Mabel and Sarah Jane grew up during the 1880's they are just like little girls today, they wanted to be pretty, and was anxious to grow up.These stories certainly transported me back to a simpler time, and often had me chuckling at the antics of Mabel and Sarah Jane. I would recommend this whole series of books to little girls or anyone who is still a little girl at heart.
