Gorgeous book!

If you could sum up Daddy-Long-Legs in three words, what would they be?

Wonderful, bright, heart-warming


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me laugh on pretty much every page (so to speak). I had so much admiration for the main character, Judy, I would highly recommend this book for both mother and daughter!
