Description

An illustrated edition of the Newberry Medal-winning Caddie Woodlawn, which has been captivating young readers since 1935. Caddie Woodlawn is a real adventurer. She'd rather hunt than sew and plow than bake, and tries to beat her brother's dares every chance she gets. Caddie is friends with Indians, who scare most of the neighbors--neighbors who, like her mother and sisters, don't understand her at all. Caddie is brave, and her story is special because it's based on the life and memories of Carol Ryrie Brink's grandmother, the real Caddie Woodlawn. Her spirit and sense of fun have made this book a classic that readers have taken to their hearts for more than seventy years.

Our customer reviews

This story takes place in 1864, on the Wisconsin frontier. The book follows the adventures of a certain girl, named Caddie Woodlawn. She is a tomboy, who likes to run around wildly with her two brothers, rather than staying inside and doing the tasks that are expected of her, like sewing, knitting, and cooking, with her mother and her older sister, Clara. Living in territory where Indians are nearby, excitement is always brewing. There are fish to catch, rafts to paddle, fields to plow, and school lessons to learn. Caddie's adventures were loosely based on the author's own grandmother. I think that makes the book interesting, to know that some of the events actually happened, and that the characters were based on real people. I recommend this book for either boys or girls. I think it was quite a fun read, and good for any age.show more
