Entertaining and witty

If you could sum up Daddy-Long-Legs in three words, what would they be?

Witty, clean, and a bit predictable.


What other book might you compare Daddy-Long-Legs to and why?

"The guernsey literary and potato peel pie society" because it is also witty and in letter form.


Which scene was your favorite?

I liked Judy's views on life especially when she says "Most people don't live; they race"

My granddaughter loved it .. So I had to read

My granddaughter had told me about this great book she had just read. So knowing that the title had a familiar ring, I googled it. To my surprise it was the same book that one of my favorite Fred Astaire movies was based upon. I rewatched the movie on Netflix and then had Audible read me the book. It was great! Can't wait to have her watch the old movie!
