Meet Molly illustration will appear here.
Meet Molly takes place in 1944 during World War II. It is about a girl named Molly McIntire. Her father went to war and left Molly, Mrs. McIntire, Jill, her 14 year old sister, Ricky, her 12 year old brother, Brad, her 5 year old brothe, and Mrs. Gilford at home together. Mrs. Gilford was their maid and cook. She always came in at 7:00 in the evening. She made them eat radishes, lima beans, and turnips because she started a Victory Garden and those vegetables were the only that turned out well.
As soon as Molly and her two best friends, Linda and Susan, found out Ricky had a crush on Jill?s best friend, Dolores, Molly and Ricky had a war of their own. Read the book to find out how their mom stopped their tricks.
I would recommend this book to third graders and up. I thought this was a great book because I could relate with Molly and her problem with her brother.
I think the author wrote this book to tell an entertaining story and I also think she succeeded in doing this.
I have not yet read another book by Valerie Tripp, but I can?t wait to read another.
