More About Annie Fellows Johnston, Anne Johnston & Etheldred B. Barry

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Indiana-born author Annie Fellows Johnston was the creator of several series of children's books that attained widespread popularity in the early twentieth century. Along the lines of "Anne of Green Gables," the charming novel "Georgina of the Rainbows" will cast an enchanting spell on girls looking for something more timeless and classic than the tween drama and supernatural fluff passed off as juvenile fiction these days. This novel was written for and about young ladies, though it has been and likely always will be a classic for the whole family.

Annie Fellows Johnston was born in 1863 and died in 1931.

Reviews - What do customers think about Little Colonel?

In praise of the series...,  Aug 29, 1999
I have found nearly every book in the "Little Colonel" series, some being first editions. I prefer the older editions, despite the numerous "racial slurs," because they are the product that the author intended to present. I have heard from various sources that the later editions have been revised, removing the colloquiallisms and unifying Lloyd's speech patterns and mannerisms with those of the other characters. I call this a shame. Obviously, no harm was meant by the author when she portrayed the African-American servants as she did, and reading Lloyd say, "...honah," rather than "honor" paints a lot more colorful picture of her character. In rating this series, I must declare it a "must read" for both boys and girls. The morals and lessons are invaluable, and would be a refreshing balm for the wounds today's youth are suffering from, even at the youngest age. I do believe if I had read the tale of "The Three Weavers," as told in "The Little Colonel At Boarding School," MY life would have been touched, sparing me much grief in later years. So, parents, grandparents, caring adults, find these literary jewels and READ them with a child. Their lives and yours will be the richer for it.
sweet stories teaching worthwhile values.  Jul 13, 1999
My mother was born in 1896, She read all the Little Colonel books and read them to me. I read them to my children and grandchildren and now have a greatgranddaughter who will get my old old and dearly loved copies.These books teach a love of classics as well as good moral values, plus,providing interesting stories.
A classic series for young readers  Jan 4, 1998
I have a complete set of the Little Colonel books that my mother accumulated for me over a period of years in the 1940's, when they were already long out of print. A classic Shirley Temple movie of the late 1930's (I think) was based on the first book, but I enjoyed the later ones even more. I am delighted to see them reissued after all these years. Lloyd Sherman and the other characters introduced in the later books (The Little Colonel's House Party and succeeding titles) were almost as real to me, when I was 8 to 12 years old, as my own friends. My favorite character was not Lloyd herself, who seemed overprivileged and a little too perfect, but Elizabeth Lloyd Lewis (Betty), the daughter of one of Lloyd's mother's girlhood friends. The stories also provide fascinating insights into post-Civil War Southern society.
