About Book

Book Description
1895. Annie Fellows Johnston was a celebrated author of children's and juvenile fiction. She is best known for the Little Colonel series, a semi- biographical opus of 13 novels dealing with the aristocracy of old Kentucky, particularly the story of a young girl, who came to be known as the little Colonel because of her bully mannerisms at the age of 5 which seemed to echo the military traits of her grandfather, a former confederate colonel. Johnston planned to complete the series several times, once after The Little Colonel's House Party, again after The Little Colonel's Knight Comes Riding. Always, public demand compelled Johnston to continue. The last work of the series, The Little Colonel Stories, Part 2, was published only a few months before her passing. In 1935, Twentieth Century Fox immortalized The Little Colonel, by making it into a film starring Shirley Temple in the role of the Little Colonel. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
