Judy Abbot is an orphan. One day she's called into the home's office, where she's told a mysterious benefactor has offered her an opportunity to go to college - with the expectations that she write letters to him without expecting an answer. Judy decides immediately to call him Daddy Long Legs. She writes him cheerful letters detailing her life at college: chatting with other girls, making new friends, trying out sports, and discovering books and authors.
My Thoughts: I'd never heard of this book until I read the third book in the Mother-Daughter Book Club - Dear Pen Pal. I decided to try it out. It's a charming book reminiscent of Little Women/Anne of Green Gables. She draws amusing pictures in some of her letters.
Cover: Cute and interesting.
