Overview

Anne of Green Gables meets The Parent Trap in this delightful tale set in a small Maine island town. When Penny Kellyhorn meets Pamela at the county fair, she is certain that she's found her long-lost twin sister. Soon they are joyfully reunited. But then scandal hits the town and threatens their newfound family.

Author Biography: Barbara Cooney's books for children have been loved by generations. Among the acclaimed books she wrote and illustrated are Eleanor, Island Boy, and Miss Rumphius.

Pam and Penny Kellyhorn are eleven-year-old twins, one living with an aunt, the other with their father and cousin, in small towns in Maine and have just met, but it doesn't take them long to learn to be sisters as together they help bring an arsonist to justice, and try to rekindle the romance between Aunt Ivory and Puppa.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Once Penny and Pamela discover that they are long-lost twins, nothing can slow their scheme to spark romantic interest between their father and their aunt. Lots of things get in the way—arson, kidnapping, a town scandal and Aunt Ivory's disappearance—to name only a few. Set in Maine and filled with spirited characters and old-fashioned charm reminiscent of Anne of Green Gables, this 1940s novel progresses quickly, with rarely a dull moment despite its 343-page length. Cooney brings this bygone era to life with colorful stories of Saturday night dances, community ice-skating and circuses come to town. Modern readers will be amused by nickel hamburgers and quaint colloquial speech. They will also be anxious to find out who burned the boardinghouse, where is Aunt Ivory, and will she marry Barnabas? Fortunately, all the dark clouds seem to have silver linings. Finding them, however, can be alternately surprising, dangerous and heartwarming. This book is part of the "Lost Treasures" series. 2001 (orig. 1942), Volo/Hyperion, $4.99 and $1.99. Ages 8 to 10. Reviewer: Betty Hicks
