Publisher's Summary

First published in 1912, Daddy-Long-Legs is an epistolary novel that follows orphan Jerusha "Judy" Abbott through her college years through a series of letters written to her anonymous benefactor, whom she nicknames "Daddy-Long-Legs." As Judy learns to navigate the complex world of studies, social life, and romance, her letters convey her growth and address the increasingly complex questions that preoccupy her. A classic coming-of-age story featuring a clever, engaging, and altogether realistic heroine, Daddy-Long-Legs has been a beloved tale since its publication and continues to delight its audiences.

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!

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"

Gorgeous book!

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

Wonderful, bright, heart-warming

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me laugh on pretty much every page (so to speak). I had so much admiration for the main character, Judy, I would highly recommend this book for both mother and daughter!

Perfect narration

I read this book as a child about 20 years ago and it was a favourite for a long time. I still find it a really sweet and delightful story. I must say that the audible version is so beautifully enhanced by Julia Whelan's perfect narration. I'll most definitely check out other books narrated by her.
