Crosby's favorite novel is Pollyanna by Eleanor H. Porter. Available in a "Yearling" edition NY: Dell.
Brief description:
When a twelve-year-old orphan comes to live with her austere and wealthy Aunt Polly, her philosophy of gladness brings happiness to the aunt and unloved members of the community.

Crosby writes that Pollyanna's philosophy is mistakenly reduced to mindless optimism. But, Pollyanna doesn't always find it easy to be happy. This novel was originally published in 1913 and is available at Burling Library. PS3531.O7342 P6 1913.
