What could have been a really charming sequel to Daddy Long Legs becomes something quite ugly, due to the frequent comments on how 'defective' children (deaf, epileptic, and mentally disabled) should be treated - ie. forced sterilisation, segregation from normal children, and even arsenic in the food!!! I know this was the period of time when eugenics were widely believed in, but to a 21st century listener, it is really disturbing and left a nasty taste in the mouth. Excellently narrated though.

I loved Daddy Long Legs and appreciated a follow up story with Judy and this time Sally doing the writing. I love taking information from the story and seeing the history from the piece.
Well Jean Webster did it again! I just loved this book. I thought nothing can top Daddy long legs, that this one would be a let down but it’s right up there along side of it. It’s a must read!
