Her life takes a turn when one of the trustees of the orphanage offer her to pay her college fees. Her benefactor chooses to remain anonymous to Jerusha and his only condition is that she should update him regularly about her progress in college through letters

My friend mentioned that Daddy-Long-Legs is an epistolary novel, and well, I love a good epistolary novel. So even though I’d just finished a short, light, comic classic (Three Men in a Boat) I decided to give another one a try rather than attempt a Big, Serious 19th century novel. The story opens with Jerusha Abbott, lifelong orphan and current drudge at the John Grier Home, the orphanage at which she was raised.

Daddy-long-legs is a story of a young girl, Jerusha Abbott and her letters to her benefactor whom she has never seen. The story proceeds through her college years. Jerusha Abbott was brought up at an old-fashioned orphanage. The children were wholly dependent on charity. They were badly fed and had to wear other people's discarded clothes.

I love this book.  I've read it a dozen times, maybe more, and was bereft when I couldn't find it in my stacks recently.  So when it was a freebie through Early Bird Books, I jumped at the chance to have a digital copy at least.  Though I admit i approached it with trepidation last night.  I'd just finished a book I didn't really care much for, and after rereading A Wrinkle in Time and finding that it didn't really live up to my memories, I feared that I might be setting myself up for more disappointment.

And in fact, there was one, which I will discuss later in the review.  But the story itself? Still captivating.  The characters, all seen through the eyes of the narrator, Judy Abbott, are both amusing and quite human. She -- Judy/Jean Webster -- has an eye for human silliness, but a forgiving one.  It's a humane book that made me smile and gave me some warm fuzzies when I needed them.

It's the story of an orphan who is sent to college by an anonymous benefactor on the condition that she writes him one letter a month to let him see how she's progressing.  But Judy, who has been an orphan since babyhood, and was raised in an orphanage, is hungry for some kind of familial contact, so she creates a kind of grandfather/father/uncle figure in her mind, and addresses her benefactor as "Daddy Long-Legs," since all she knows about his is that he's tall and wealthy.

Her letters are warm, rich, and amusing, and it's easy to fall in love with a girl who is in the process of falling in love with the whole world, a world she couldn't even imagine growing up as she did. I could read Judy's adventures all day, and recommend this book as a balm to treat weltschmerz.  Five stars for the story.

Alas, three stars for the Open Road Media Young Readers version.  The original is filled with charming drawings, but Open Road didn't include any of them.  Or rather, they included exactly ONE. Why they chose to do that is beyond me.  It's either weird or it's sloppy, but that one illustration really irritated me.  I wasn't happy that all the rest were gone, but had there been some consistency I'd have shrugged and thought "Oh well."  But including one of them meant that including them all wouldn't have been a problem, and they just decided not to bother.

So I'm happy to have the text, but I would recommend a different digital version.

This is different from most books I've read and I wasn't sure about the format at first, but J. Webster does a good job with providing enough details in each letter to make the story interesting. I like how Judy's language matures throughout the book so you sense her growth and change as she discovers who she is and who she wishes to be. Looking around before reading this for a book club, the age suggestion was for grade 6-8 but the vocabulary seems to be too advanced for most 12-14 year olds unless they are well read and need the challenge. Other than that, the plot was unique and comical reading of her experiences. I find that she is very relatable and that she is a great example of optimism despite her struggles and fears. I also enjoyed watching her frustration over who DLL is even though the reader begins to figure it out halfway through. Some people don't like that and normally I don't either, but this was well done. It's a fairly quick read, though it did take longer than I expected it to. I'd definitely recommend this to others.

I first read this when I waa a young girl, more interested in Barbies and books than any serious interest in boys, buy I enjoyed and reread it many times. I gave it to my daughter when she was around 12. She loved it as well and has since given it to my granddaughter who will be 18 in Dec. When I laughingly told her I'd read it again, she did the same. If she has daughters and granddaughters I hope she follows the tradition because it's such a lovely introduction into the romance grnre. If you haven't read it it is a delightful book.

This is a charming story about an orphan from the John Grier Home for Orphans being sent to college by one of the school's trustees. The only requirement that is attached to the money is that Jerusha ‘Judy’ Abbott must send monthly letters to the donor, without ever expecting any message in return.

The thing I enjoyed about this Puffin Classics version was the additional pages at the end that added so much to my enjoyment of the book. First, Jean Webster's short life was outlined including a list of her novels. There are six sections at the end, including "Famous Orphans in Children's Literature."

I look forward to rereading this book in the future.

Lovely old classic from the early 1900's that was successfully made into a movie staring Fred Astaire. A wealthy trustee of a orphanage pays for a young girl's college education on the condition that she writes him every week and that his identity remains anonymous. The rest of the book consists of her letters to him. At the end one truly wishes the author to break out of the letter format also the letters have been fun and revealing of the heroine's character. The letter at the end maintains a barrier to the action that had taken place.

This is a quick, light and very charming read. It's a great introduction to the mysterious benefactor genre My daughter, 13, read it along side me and didn't guess who Daddy Long legs was until quite late in the book. She loved the slow reveal and enjoyed the glimpses into early 20th century girls boarding school life. I loved Jerusha ( Judy) Abbot, she is a well read, big hearted and ebulliently verbal girl very much in the vein of Anne Shirley. It was written around 1913 so is free on kindle but we loved it so much that we had to buy a physical copy to have on our shelves too. Highly recommended.
