This is a book for any lover of children's literature, lover of art, or lover of Michigan history. Not only will you learn about the remarkable life of Lapeer's most famous personage, you will learn about the history of Lapeer during the time of Mrs. deAngeli's childhood. Lapeer was always home to Mrs. deAngeli and she returned here often. In this book, we share many of her public moments including the dedication of the library building in her honor during the 1981 Lapeer Days.
