Overview

Travel inside the paintings of Thomas Kinkade in this delightful collection of eight heart-warming stories of friendship-some adaptations of beloved classics, some original stories of extraordinary lives. Any girl who has ever had a best friend will treasure the adaptations of favorite scenes from Anne of Green Gables, The Secret Garden, Heidi and Little Women. They'll also be inspired by real-life heroines like Harriet Tubman, the former slave who forged a trail to freedom via the Underground Railroad-and Helen Keller, who shared an enduring friendship with her teacher, Anne Sullivan. The friends featured in this volume withstand conflict, separation and the challenges of growing up, emerging as strong models of dedication and devotion for today's young readers. Beautiful spot art and border design by Kevin Burke bring the stories to life and add a child-like touch to the book.

A collection of stories that describe different kinds of friendship, taken from familiar novels and from the lives of such people as Harriet Tubman and Helen Keller.
