Wendy McClure Quotes: I Found The World Of The Little House

I Found The World Of The Little House Books To Be So Much Less Confusing, Not Just Because It Was "simpler," As Plenty Of People Love To Insist, But Because It Reconciled All The Little Contradictions Of My Modern Girlhood. On The Banks Of Plum Creek Clicked With Me Especially, With Its Perfect Combination Of Pinafores And Recklessness. (I Will Direct Your Attention To The Illustration On Page 31 Of My Plum Creek Paperback, Where You Will Note How Fabulous Laura Looks As She Pokes The Badger With A Stick; Her Style Is Casual Yet Feminine, Perfect For Precarious Nature Adventures!) At An Age When I Found Myself Wanting Both A Webelos Uniform And A Head Of Beautiful Superstar Barbie Hair, On The Banks Of Plum Creek Was A Reassuring Book. Being A Girl Sometimes Made More Sense In Laura World Than It Did In Real Life.
