Little Prudy

Pat Pflieger's excellent Nineteenth-Century American Children and What They Read site has a transcription of the most famous (and glowing) review of the Little Prudy books, from an 1866 article, "Children's Books of the Year," by Thomas Wentworth Higginson. (The Prudy comments appear on pg. 243.)
