Listed in 1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up, The Fortunes of Philippa is a lovely example of Angela Brazil’s schoolgirl books, highly popular in her day but banned by some boarding schools for being a poor influence on the moral standards of the day. (Brazil was among the earliest British writers to write in order to entertain, and not instruct the reader morally, and books like Harry Potter can trace their lineage to Brazil's influence; see the Smidgen Press blog for more details.)

This sweet story, inspired by the life of Brazil’s own mother, will take you back in time to Edwardian England, a time before world wars, a time when young girls embraced the joy of life. Reminiscent of Frances Hodgson Burnett’s A Little Princess, you’ll find Philippa’s adventures full of fun and laughter, a ready escape from 21st century troubles.
