Spunky Emily Bartlett lives in an old farmhouse in Pitchfork, Oregon-at a time when autos are new inventions and libraries are a luxery few small towns can afford. Her runaway imagination leads her to bleach a horse, hold a very scary sleepover, and feed the hogs an unusual treat.
The heroine Emily is a child whose imagination always runs away from her. She has many adventures when she decides to open a post office in Pitchfork, Oregon. My daughter loved this book. It was very entertaining and she read it to herself in 2nd grade.
