Told with great charm and tender sentiment this beloved tale of gentle, warm-hearted Carol Bird, who was born on Christmas day, has delighted young and old for generations.

Perhaps it was because she had "a tiny share of the blessedest birthday the world ever knew" that Carol was such a radiantly happy child, full of love and giving, even when illness made her invalid. The story of the little lame girl's beautiful life, and especially her happy friendship with the nine little Ruggleses, her neighbors across the alley, cannot fail to win the hearts of all who come to know her.

From the dust jacket of the 1929 Grosset and Dunlap edition published in arrangement with Houghton Mifflin Company
