She also sees nothing wrong with having an invisible best friend who lives in the orchard. But as Marigold starts to get older, her family is hoping she'll be a little less fanciful and a little more sensible. Yet how is it possible to be sensible when you meet a girl who claims to be a princess? Or when someone mistakes you for a girl who died? For Marigold, every day brings a bit of magicand she wouldn't have it any other way. What Readers are Saying: Wonderful! You will love Marigold. This was my favorite L.M. Montgomery book as a kid. I loved this book. I found myself wanting to be in Marigold's world...it sounded so wonderful.
