Magic for Marigold

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 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.

  1. Sounds like a nice book will keep a look out at my library

  2. I used to like Anne of Green Gables as a kid. Not heard of this one but will look out for it. Leah x

  3. The book depository website has a few copies of this book available - just had a quick look. I have to say I don't remember this book.

  4. Thanks again for the typo correction on my blog post, all updated & credited to you too. Have fun at your Gunning Patchwork event, sorry i can't make it, have a blast, love Posie

  5. I don't remember this one either. I think at that price though the library is a very good choice. I love looking at the returned cart at the library and seeing what others have been reading. You sometimes find some good reads this way. I want to re read Winnie the Pooh and also Wind in the Willows. I never understand why they call such books "children's" one is ever too old for Pooh or Anne of Green Gables for that matter, Happy Easter xx Katherine

  6. Ooo! I'll have to look out for that one - I loved the Anne of Green Gables series.
