I adored this as a young adult - and now when I'm nearly 80 too! That gruesome awful American orphanage ... And Judy's release... And American high life and student goings on .... And then the. unexpected shock ending ( well did YOU guess it? ) . A sweet story. As for what happens to Judy's and Sally next ... It's all in 'Dear Enemy'.

Before I read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, I was uncertain that I'd like the 'letters only' style of writing but I did. I then Googled other books of that style and found Daddy-Long-Legs. I sampled it and was hooked. Like a previous reviewer, I loved every minute of it and didn't want it to end.

I initially read this book while in Middle School (many MANY years ago) and LOVED it.I got a copy for my daughters when they were the same age. They also loved it. I recently re-read it,and still love it. It's a very well written and entertaining book for all ages. A rarity these days. I recommended it to a friend with school age daughters, and told her she should read it herself, as she would like it at least as much as they. If for no other reason, read it to get an insight into what college was like for women 100 years ago.

I read the Mother Daughter Book Club and was intreigued by there telling of the story. I bought this book to find it was only 89 page long which surprised me. I think i bought the wrong book or maybe not cause i do remeber in MDBC that they also read dear enemy and another i cannot seem to remeber. Please help me find the right book!!! I have a small dissapoint,ent in the version i bought there were no pictures unlike the way MDBC describes the book.please help me!!!!

I read this book when I was little and loved it. I enjoyed it just as much as an adult. I laughed, I cried and I completely enjoyed every word I read.

Daddy-Long-Legs was the best book ever! I enjoyed every minute of it, and it had a great story. Judy Abbott is such a real charcter, as are the rest of the charcters in this novel. The pictures are very amusing, and so you another level of Judy. Another thing that is great is it's considered a classic, yet it's more modern (Little Women, Ivanhoe, and Alice in Wonderland are all already classics at this time). I loved every second of it.

I had bought the book in 7th grade with a little... well, lot of apprehension. I mean, c'mon, a book about an orphan who's being send to college by a well-wisher? That did sound like, a lot of 'in debt to you', prim girls and stern Godfathers were going to be involved. Instead, I found this fun book, so full of love and laughter that from then to now I've read it about half a hundred times. Jean Webster is truly amazing. Hats off!

It is a very cute book. It pretty much follows the movie (Judy played by Leaslie Carone & Jervis by Fred Astair) which is just as good. I lkied how it was done by letters although I wish that the ending had been told like the beginning had been. I would reccomend this to anyone who likes older books (not too old but just a little old lol) it is not exactly uptodate or anything but it us a very sweet book. My sister read the sequel Dear Enemy which she say is told by Julia Pendeltons point of view and the book is told in letter form like this is only it is all letters and nothing else. But she also said that it was not as good as this one. I would say that this is a definite "must read." LF
