This book, by the author of The Egg & I, is mostly about young people in Seattle during the depression. Written with humour and style, it is hugely entertaining. Not to be missed is the chapter titled 'Let Nothing You Dismay'.
I have not read her children's books but I highly recommend all of Betty MacDonald's adult books including The Plague & I and Onions in the Stew.
