Rebecca Rowena Randall first won the hearts of readers in 1903, when Houghton MiVlin published Kate Douglas Wiggin"s novel Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm. An outspoken and precocious ten-year-old, Rebecca is one of those rare characters who have truly become a fixture in the canon of classic children"s literature.
Rebecca"s good nature and generous, passionate spirit have made her a treasured heroine for more than a hundred years. Now, to celebrate the one hundredth anniversary of the novel"s original publication, Houghton MiVlin is proud to reissue Rebecca"s story in this new and unabridged edition with a special introduction by Newbery Honor-winning author, Patricia Reilly Giff and luminous illustrations by award-winning artist Barbara McClintock.
