Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm

Kate Douglas Wiggin. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH), $20 (290pp) ISBN 978-0-618-34694-3

Another title celebrating a century marker, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm by Kate Douglas Wiggin, appears with new illustrations by Barbara McClintock. Her signature artwork with its period details, which appears as full-color plates throughout, seems particularly well suited to this cheery heroine. The illustrations impart a cozy, familiar feel to a long-ago world, and reveals a lively, generous spirit in the heroine who leaves her home to live with her two elderly aunts.
