This is Sadie

Author(s): Julie Morstad

Great Girls

Sadie is a little girl with a big imagination; in her short life she has been a girl who lived under the sea and a boy raised by wolves, a wonderland adventurer and a visitor to the world of fairy tales.


O'Leary and Morstad pull off a rare feat, detailing all of Sadie's fanciful stories without mocking, thus crafting an ode to quirky children everywhere bound to be equally beloved by quirky children themselves and by quirky adults.
