Profile: Girl, 8, likes nature, poetry, art

Pippi meets Wednesday.

Here we have a likeable, creative, nature-loving and artistic eight-year-old girl.

She's a little bit Pippi Longstocking and a little bit Wednesday Adams.

Sound like someone you know? If so, she might enjoy the same books this girl enjoys.

Female, age 8 (almost 9), Canadian, enjoys reading (smaller books)

Attentive, caring, nature lover

Nature, poetry, writing, art

1) Journey to the River Sea, by Eva Ibbotson
(Take a look at Eva Ibbotson's bio - it's fascinating.)

2) The Penderwicks, by Jeanne Birdsall

3) The Invention of Hugo Cabret, by Brian Selznick

4) Diary of a Wimpy Kid - Dog Days, by Jeff Kinney

5) The Fog Mound series, by Susan Schade and Jon Buller
(The rights have just been purchased, to create an animated feature film of these great books.)

What the heck is this post about? This'll explain it.
The mom who interviewed her daughter said she was really interested to hear how her daughter described herself, and the thoughtful list of books she came up with. Great job! Thanks, S and L.
The image is a picture of Pippi Longstocking and I think it conveys this girl's spirit pretty well. This is the illustrator.
