Jean Webster’s 1912 epistolary novel Daddy Long Legs follows the life of Judy Abbott through a series of letters she writes to her guardian. Judy is an orphan in college but is too ashamed to admit that to anyone. We learn about her as she shares her secrets with her guardian. The novel’s conversational tone endears it to adults and children and the mystery of the guardian’s identity keeps them hooked.
