More About This Book

Overview

When Sally Benson wrote Meet Me in St. Louis in 1941, Europe and Asia were embroiled in a war into which the United States of America would soon be drawn. Her delightful story took readers back to a simpler place and time: St. Louis and the Smith family on the eve of the 1904 World's Fair. The novel's appealing characters and nostalgic theme proved just what the country needed in uncertain times. Her screenplay of the same name would become one of the best-loved movies of its era.

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the historic World's Fair, St. Louis County Library proudly offers this reprinting of Sally Benson's classic novel. The narrative revolves around the Smiths, and in particular, three of the family's daughters: Rose, Esther, and 6-year-old Tootie, who is based on Sally herself. We invite you to visit the St. Louis of another era and enjoy this charming story once again.

    Beautiful Story

    This is a Wonderful story. but the character of Agnes is actually based on Sally Benson herself. See the actual Judy Garland pages and the special collecter's movie edition and you shall get more info regarding this book and movie. It's such a same Judy passed away so young, there was to be a sequal that never came to be. Does anyone know if the other stories that go along with this book are in print anywhere? Sally Benson wrote a whole series.

    the real deal

    This is such a wonderful story--I highly recommend it to anybody who wants to be transported back to 1903-04. I heard that Tootie is Sally Benson herself. Does anybody know anything about the Smith family after New York (Benson is her married name and this is assuming she didn't change her family's name)? This book really makes me wonder what they look like, and how ancestor's feel about the book and movie.

    Meet Me In St. Louis, Meet Me At The Fair!

    Meet Me in St. Louis is a classical story about the Smith family and how they lived through the year of 1903. Characters such as Tootie, Ehster, Agnes and Rose light up the story and will charm you. The first time I ever read the book was in my library. And the reason I found the book was because I had already seen the movie. Sally Benson was one of the greatest authors from 1900-1972. Meet Me in St. Louis is a book for anyone who ever dared to dream back to 1903 in St. Louis. BUY IT TODAY!

    Ms. Benson's book is delightful!

    I recommend this book for anyone who loves the past (20th century). Fot those of you who have seen the movie 'Meet me in St. Louis' will expect a story from the older girls: Esther, Rose, and Agnes, but in this story it's Tootie's story. The story from the heart of a little girl.
