This sequel to "Caddie Woodlawn" is a collection of 14 short stories about Caddie's family and friends. One thing that I really liked about it was getting to know Caddie's siblings and friends a little bit better. I especially liked the stories that focused on Hetty. Even though I didn't think this one was quite as good as the first book, it was still fun to read. Just FYI, this book was originally titled "Magical Melons." I'd recommend this book to children ages 8-12, especially those who like the Little House books, the American Girls series, or (of course) "Caddie Woodlawn.

I loved "Caddie Woodlawn" as a child and was delighted to find this new collection of stories. I bought this as a gift for my niece but had to read it first. Apparently these were stories that were not included in the first book. They were a collection of short stories rather than one continuous tale but I enjoyed every one, especially the story about the doll.

This is a great book - especially for Tomboys or people that like books that take place many years ago. It's a truly GREAT book.
