A novel by

 
 
Out of print for decades, and extremely hard to find until now, Margaret Millar's bestselling and only book-length foray into children's literature stars a precocious (maybe pernicious) young girl named Priscilla, whose flair for the dramatic is matched only by her preternatural intellect.

A humorous yet touching children's novel about a precocious and mercurial young girl named Priscilla and her oh-so-patient family. Priscilla, a little morose and very dramatic, is a headstrong kid with a flair for hyperbole and designs on life that seem to outgrow her family's traditional lifestyle by the minute. This semi-autobiographical story was a bestseller in its day and remains a delightful depiction of a pre-war childhood, even if the protagonist skews more Wednesday Addams than Dorothy Gale of Kansas.
