Overview
More than three decades after Johnston first created the characters of a stately old Kentucky colonel and his little granddaughter, Lloyd Sherman, The Little Colonel Stories: Second Series continues the adventures of the bold and mischievous Little Colonel. One of the few Little Colonel stories dealing with race, "Ole Mammy's Torment" depicts the relationship between the Little Colonel's family and their black servants. "The Three Tremonts" follows Stuart, Phil, and Elise Tremont, as well as their pet monkey, Dago, all of whom are prominent characters alongside Lloyd Sherman and Mary Ware in the Little Colonel novels. These stories and more are included in this volume, an excellent addition to the adventures of the Little Colonel and a terrific opportunity to introduce new readers to the exciting world of that rambunctious young girl we all know and love.

The movie starred Shirley Temple and Lionel Barrymore. Born on a farm in a small town in Indiana on May 15, 1863, Annie sharpened her writing skills as a young girl. Her father, a minister, died when she was two but left an exstensive collection of reading material, and her mother, an advocate for womenís education, encouraged Annie to teach and go to college. She attended the University of Iowa for a year, taught for three years, worked as a private secretary, and traveled through New England and Europe before she married a cousin, who encouraged her to write, and became a mother to his three young children. Mrs. Johnstonís unique writing style fictionalized real people and experiences. On a visit to Pewee Valley, Kentucky, in 1895, Mrs. Johnston met little Hattie Cochran,
