I was in the child's section of my local library the other day and at the "M" section, when who should I run into, but L. M. Montgomery. Having grown up reading Anne of Green Gables and the like, I skipped over these, and discovered she had also written another book called Magic for Marigold.
The edition I am reading is published by Angus & Robertson Publishers and was purchased by the library I suspect around 1982 (first date of borrowing) for the price of $5.95. The reason I mention this is because it is the same hardback series that was purchased for me around the same time by my Aunty Joan.
I've looked on booko.com.au for a copy and the cheapest and only one I can find is for AUD $66.12! Luckily, if you are interested in reading it, it is also listed with Project Gutenberg Australia here.
I am up to Chapter 2 and loving it and having recently read a few adult fiction books (that were more focused on the destruction of marriages and infidelity!), finding this interesting and enthralling.
