I have just reponded to a discussion about favourite books when we were children. Now in my case I had a VERY long way to think back But when anyone asks me this I always respond with the book 'The Wide Wide World', I know that I thoroughly enjoyed this book and read it over and over. All I can recall from it is something about material for a dress!! ( It was almost 50 years ago!!) I didn't know ho wrote this book and I didn't even know if it was around. So I did a search and found out that Susan Warner's The Wide, Wide World was f published in 1852 and classed as America's first bestseller. I have even found it for sale on Amazon so I am going to buy a copy and re read it and pass it down to my granddaughters!! Thanks for recalling this memory to me myLot!! Have any of you read or even heard of 'The Wide Widw World'?
