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.
