Magic for Marigold by L.M. Montgomery
Rating: 4 Stars
Description: Marigold Lesley is born shortly after her the death of her father and spends weeks unnamed as her mother is very ill. When Marigold falls ill the Lesley clan is in a panic lest the child die unnamed. They finally decide to name her after the doctor who saves her - a woman named Marigold. The rest of the book is about the adventures Marigold has throughout her childhood.
My Impression: This was a sweet little stand alone but definitely not my favorite. Marigold is an usual Montgomery child because she is dearly loved and has a pretty charmed life. Marigold is an imaginative little girl who spends quite a bit of time with imaginary friends in imaginary lands. It's a fun sweet little book but not much of it really stuck with me. Marigold is the youngest character and by the end she's only about as old as Anne was at the start of Anne of Green Gables. This book I think is definitely geared more towards a younger reading audience.
Would I Read More of this Series/Author?: Yes
Would I Recommend this Book?: Probably not though it would be a good read aloud book for a little girl.
